AstraZeneca can be given to people over 65 years of age / Day


“Based on evidence of overall availability, the WHO recommends the use of this vaccine in people 65 years of age and older,” said the latest recommendations of the Strategic Advisory Group on Immunization Experts.

The vaccine can also be used in countries where “variants are prevalent,” the statement said, despite recent studies showing that the vaccine is much less effective against the Covid-19 strain originally found in South Africa.

The study found that the vaccine’s effectiveness was limited to the mild to moderate symptoms of Covid-19, but there was no evidence that it did not protect against severe disease, according to WHO experts.

“A coordinated approach is needed to monitor and evaluate strains and their potential impact on vaccine efficacy,” the organization stressed.
