    UPDATE 1-Norway should exclude J&J, AstraZeneca from COVID vaccination scheme, says commission

    Norway should exclude the COVID-19 vaccines made by AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson in its inoculation program due to a risk of rare but harmful side-effects, a government-appointed commission said on Monday. Those who would volunteer to take either of the two vaccines should however be allowed to do so, the commission added. Authorities on March 11 suspended the AstraZeneca rollout after a small number of younger inoculated people were hospitalised for a combination of blood clots, bleeding and a low count of platelets, some of whom later died.

    Dollar Weakness; Payrolls Could Delay Fed Tapering

    The dollar edged lower in early European trade Monday, continuing its weakness after falling to a two-month low on the back of Friday’s disappointing U.S.  jobs report, which pointed to the ultra-low interest rate policy staying in place for some time. Friday’s U.S. employment report for April came in well below expectations, with nonfarm payrolls only rising by 266,000 during the month, after robust private payrolls data from the ADP and weekly initial claims numbers had lifted expectations to a one million-plus rise. Attention will now switch this week to inflation data, although the mantra from Fed policymakers that the increase is due to temporary factors will carry extra weight following the jobs data.
