National Vaccination Committee President Maria Theodoridou advised calm ahead of the European Medicines Agency's upcoming assessment on whether the AstraZeneca vaccine is associated with the development of thrombosis and thrombocytopenia.

"We can now say, it is clear that there is a link with the vaccine", Cavaleri said in the interview. A causal link with the vaccine is not proven, but is possible and further analysis is continuing, the agency said.

Scientists are exploring several possibilities that might explain the extremely rare brain blood clots that occurred in individuals in the days and weeks after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.

However, the EMA then conducted an investigation into the vaccine, and found that the benefits outweigh the risks and it should continue to be used.

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, tasked to help with the rollout of the nationwide inoculation programme from May, said on Tuesday that slow domestic vaccine approvals and logistics issues will now push deliveries to June.

Investigations are underway to determine if the rare syndrome is a side effect from the AstraZeneca vaccine or just a coincidence.

"The U.K. needs to be on high alert as it starts using the vaccine in younger people", Sam Fazeli, an analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence, wrote in a report.

The majority of Australia's near 26 million population will be administered the AstraZeneca vaccine, with 50 million doses set to be produced locally from the end of March.

The EMA last week recommended that countries should keep using the AstraZeneca vaccine because the benefits outweighed the risks, as countries including Italy suspended their rollout of the jab. There have been seven deaths among the 30 cases.
