A legal expert from the World Health Organization has warned that a loss of trust in the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine could damage efforts to fight the coronavirus around the world.
The European Union's drug regulator has said blood clots can be a very rare side effect.
But Professor Lawrence Gostin insisted that the vaccine was a lifesaver.
"What saddens me most is that the AstraZeneca vaccine was going to be perhaps the primary engine to vaccinate the world because it's much more easily stored than the mRNA vaccines and the other vaccines and also, it's cost-effective. It's a lower affordable cost. And so, loss of global public trust in AstraZeneca vaccines could be a huge blow to WHO."
