A Government spokesperson said:
"We are aware of the action in Ireland and several other European countries regarding the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID vaccine.
The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), who regulate all medicines in the UK, have today stated that they are closely reviewing the reports, but there is no evidence to suggest the vaccine causes blood clots.
The European Medicines Regulator and the World Health Organisation have also said that the vaccine is safe.
We have no concerns over the use of the vaccine for our roll-out in Jersey. We have another busy week of vaccinations planned, and we would strongly encourage all eligible Islanders to attend for their vaccination when it's their turn."
