The Biden administration stopped a Baltimore manufacturer from making AstraZeneca Plc’s Covid-19 vaccine, days after the facility ruined 15 million doses of shots developed by Johnson & Johnson, the New York Times reported, citing two senior federal health officials who weren’t identified.

This comes as weekly U.S. infections hit their highest point since late February, even with vaccinations at record levels. The U.K. confirmed seven people had died from blood clots after receiving AstraZeneca’s vaccine.

More than 18 million doses have been administered in the country, and regulators insist the shot is safe.

The first phase of Australia’s coronavirus vaccine rollout appeared to be two months behind schedule, the Age reported, citing federal Health Department tenders. Argentine President Alberto Fernandez tested positive after taking a preliminary antigen screening for his fever.
