However, they said they would add a warning to the bottles of the vaccine about the possibility of abnormal blood clots in those receiving the vaccine.

Officials at the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) previously approved the re-launch of the vaccine.

The 15 people who received the vaccine reported having developed blood clots after receiving about 8 million doses of the vaccine.

This week vaccination controllers lifted the ban on those who had imposed another AstraZeneca vaccine on the grounds that a few victims were reporting cases of blood clotting.

However, it was said that the benefits of the vaccine are far greater than the side effects of the vaccine.

Children over the age of 18 will now be offered the vaccine.

The decision means the 10 million doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, sent to the country from the Netherlands will now be distributed for use in the United States.
