After new reports of thromboses of the cerebral veins in connection with the vaccination in Germany and Europe, the PEI considers further investigations to be necessary,” said the German health ministry, referring to a recommendation by the country’s vaccine authority, the Paul Ehrlich Institute.

“The European Medicines Agency EMA will decide whether and how the new findings will affect the approval of the vaccine,” it added.

German Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Monday that a causal connection “cannot be completely ruled out.”

Spahn explained that the suspension was a “purely precautionary measure” and added that he expected a decision on the safety of the vaccine to be made by the European Medicines Agency within the next week.
