Johnson & Johnson says it is delaying the rollout of its coronavirus vaccine in Europe amid a US probe into rare blood clots.
The company announced the decision Tuesday after regulators in the United States said they were recommending a pause in administration of the single-dose shot to investigate reports of potentially dangerous blood clots.
