Astrazeneca fully understands Danish vaccine pause: "It's about maintaining trust in the vaccines"

Astrazeneca fully understands that Danish authorities have extended the suspension of the Swedish-British vaccine in spite of the facts that EMA and WHO still recommend using the vaccine, and that a host of other countries have kept it in their vaccine programs.
