The chairman of the Council on Ethics criticizes the voluntary scheme for scrapped vaccines


It must be possible to choose a corona vaccine from AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson that has been scrapped from the general vaccination program due to rare side effects.

A political majority agreed on Monday.

It will be a voluntary scheme.

But in reality, the choice will not necessarily be free, says Anne-Marie Gerdes, who is chairman of the Ethics Council.

“There is the carrot that you can get a corona pass if you have been vaccinated. Then you could well imagine that you could be more preoccupied with choosing the vaccine and ignore side effects and disadvantages, “she says.

The Danish Health and Medicines Authority has removed the vaccine from Johnson & Johnson and the one from AstraZeneca from the Danish vaccination program because there is a risk of side effects such as rare but serious blood clots.

The side effect has been dubbed Vitt (Vaccine-Induced Immune Thrombosis and Thrombocytopenia). The National Board of Health estimates that it occurs in approximately 1 in 40,000 vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine.
