Belgium will stop vaccinating people aged 40 years and under with the Janssen vaccine after a woman died in a Belgian hospital. This is said to be a woman of foreign nationality who was vaccinated abroad with the vaccine of Johnson & Johnson, the parent company of Leiden Janssen.

The Flemish Minister of Health Wouter Beke confirmed this to the editors of news channel VRT. According to the minister, ” a link is made between the death and the vaccine.”

“This is a woman under the age of 40, which is why we have now asked the European Medicines Agency for advice to investigate the matter further”, says Beke to VRT Nieuws. “But for the wider population, we have decided to stop administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to people who are 40 years of age or younger for the time being.”
