According to the Secretary General of the Ministry of Health, Marios Themistokleous, on May 5, the vaccinations with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will start, which were suspended due to 6 cases of thrombosis that were registered in the USA. The official decision of the National Vaccination Committee is expected in the coming days, which will be similar to the instructions of the European Medicines Agency (Coreper). It is recalled that Coreper after a meeting gave the green light for the administration of the vaccine, assessing that the benefits far outweigh the rare complications.
