The announcement came as Ireland stopped using the jab on Sunday following reports of severe clots from Norwegian adults with four hospitalized.
Irish Health Minister Stephen Donnelly said this is a preventive measure.
The UKs Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said: We are aware of the action in Ireland.

We are scrutinizing the report, but given the high doses and the frequency at which blood clots can occur naturally, the available evidence does not suggest that the vaccine is the cause.
Italy’s Piedmont region also declared on Saturday that it stopped using batches of the AstraZeneca vaccine after the teacher died after being vaccinated.
Areas around the northern city of Turin initially stopped all AstraZeneca vaccines to identify and isolate batches from the village of Jabbiella administered to teachers.
The measure was a preventive measure and the area was waiting for test results to see if there was a link between death and vaccination, officials said.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said countries should continue to use the vaccine, adding that there was no link between jabs and blood clots at all.
In a statement on RTE, AstraZeneca said that analysis of safety data for more than 17 million doses of vaccine administered showed no evidence of an increased risk of associated diseases, and no trends or patterns were observed in clinical trials.
In fact, the number of incidents of this type reported against the Covid-19 vaccine AstraZeneca is not more than what may have occurred naturally in the non-vaccinated population.
A careful review of all available safety data, including these events, is underway and AstraZeneca is committed to sharing information without delay.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has initiated an emergency review of all clotting events arising from the vaccine to determine if there are possible safety risks.
A statement from the Irelands Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) said: To date, HPRA has received few reports of blood clots after vaccination with AstraZeneca.
However, we have not received any reports of what the Norwegian Medicines Agency describes.
We will continue to monitor national reports very closely and continue to encourage reporting of suspected side effects following the Covid-19 vaccination.
Several other European countries have temporarily suspended AstraZeneca jabs.
The EMA reported in Austria that a person was diagnosed with a blood clot and died 10 days after vaccination, but stressed that there are currently no signs that vaccination caused this condition.
Another was admitted to an Austrian hospital for pulmonary embolism (blockage of an artery in the lungs) after vaccination, and in Denmark, 1 death was reported related to a blood clot.
Denmark, Norway and Iceland say they are temporarily halting all AstraZeneca vaccines for investigation.
