Denmark announced they were suspending their national COVID-19 injection program, becoming the first country to do so.
The country cited its high COVID-19 inoculation rate, a reduction in the number of new infections, and stable hospitalization rates as reasons for the suspension.
Invitations for COVID-19 inoculations will no longer be issued after May 15th.

However, officials expect to resume the program after summer.
So, there’s nothing worth celebrating in my opinion.
All the poison shots should be tossed in the dumpster.
Denmark’s chief physician, Bolette Soborg, said: “We plan to reopen the vaccination program in the autumn. This will be preceded by a thorough professional assessment of who and when to vaccinate and with which vaccines.”
Professor of European public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Martin McKee, told Newsweek: “It’s important to be clear that Denmark is not halting vaccination. People who haven’t finished their courses will still be able to get doses.
“Also it’s seen as a pause over the summer, with an expectation that it will resume in the fall.”
As Newsweekpreviously reported Denmark made headlines in February when it became the first country in the European Union to lift all of its COVID restrictions.
The move meant that citizens of Denmark were no longer required to wear face masks in indoor spaces with COVID passes for bars and restaurants and the need for self-isolation following a positive test result also ended.
But there’s one statistic officials won’t share with the public.
And that’s excess mortality.
Denmark’s excess mortality skyrocketed from negative to positive shortly after the COVID-19 inoculation program began.
Denmark started their COVID-19 inoculation program on December 27, 2020.
From March 7, 2021 to May 9, 2021, Denmark’s excess mortality rose from -20% to +4%.
Denmark’s peak excess mortality was +17% on December 26, 2021.
