The UK announced the suspension of clinical trials of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine against children. At the same time, the British drug regulatory agency is investigating the connection between the vaccine and the rare blood clot problem that occurs after adult vaccination.

Professor Andrew Pollard of the University of Oxford told the BBC that the experiment itself had no safety issues, but the scientists on his team were waiting for further news.

Approximately 300 volunteers signed up to participate in the trial.

Earlier British Prime Minister Johnson called on the public to be vaccinated when invited.
