SYDNEY, April 8 — Australia has no current plans to change the rollout of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine in the country, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said, after Europe’s drug regulator found possible links between rare blood clots and the vaccine.

“There is nothing to suggest at this stage that there would be any change but we will update further if there is any change to that,” Morrison told reporters in Canberra today.
