ZAGREB (Reuters) - Slovenia has temporarily halted the use of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, joining a number of the European Union states in the move, the national news agency STA reported on Monday citing Health Minister Janez Poklukar.

“An expert group suggested out of caution a temporary halt until the decision by the European Medicines Agency (EMA),” STA quoted Poklukar as saying.
