No reason to cancel Covid-19 vaccine - health minister

Ashford's plea as under 30's offered alternative jab

The health minister is urging people not to cancel Covid-19 vaccination appointments.

It's after concerns about the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab and links to blood clots.

People under the age of 30, and those at higher risk of blood clots because of a medical condition, will be offered an alternative vaccine.

David Ashford says there have been a number of cancellations in recent days, and he wants to quash any concerns:

Government says it hopes to have the entire adult population vaccinated with at least one dose of a vaccine by the end of July.
