Piers Morgan, 55, has slammed the “ridiculous EU panic” that has ensued after “some” coronavirus vaccination patients had reported side effects including blood clots. The former Good Morning Britain presenter added this latest development could only be a positive for the UK, as it meant there would now be a greater surplus of product for Britons.
In view of his 7.8 million followers, Piers re-tweeted a post from PA media, that read: “Germany, France and Italy have suspended use of the Oxford/AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine as a precautionary measure amid reports that some people developed blood clots after receiving the shot.”
Alongside the latest development from the news agency, the TV personality added: “Great, more for us. There’s no evidence to support this ridiculous EU panic.
“Boris Johnson should tell AstraZeneca we’ll take all their unwanted vaccines for Britain,” he added.
Underneath his loyal fans shared their opinion on the vaccine and its effectiveness.
Piers’ statement comes as three countries in the EU suspended using the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine as a precautionary measure today.
French President Emmanuel Macron told a news conference this afternoon, that authorities in the country have decided to suspend jabs at least until Tuesday afternoon.
The European Medicines Agency will then issue its recommendation over how to proceed using the vaccine.
Macron hopes France will be able to vaccinate again with AstraZeneca shots “soon”.
