The World Health Organization Recommends The Use Of The AstraZeneca Vaccine For Those Over The Age Of 65
The World Health Organization recommended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine against Coronavirus, for those over the age of 65.
The vaccine experts at the World Health Organization had begun discussions to decide on recommendations for the use of the AstraZeneca / Oxford vaccine, including in the elderly, while South Africa suspended the launch of the vaccination program using this vaccine in light of fears that it would not be effective against the mutated version of Corona.
This vaccine, which the UK was the first to use on a large scale in its own population in December, has gained approval from many countries as well as the European Union.
However, some governments have preferred to recommend it only to those under 65 or even 55 years due to a lack of sufficient data on its effectiveness in older adults.
And on Sunday, South Africa suspended the start of its campaign, which was scheduled to start in the next few days with a million doses of the "AstraZeneca" vaccine, as a test showed that it provides only "the minimum" protection against mild to moderate infections in Corona, caused by the mutated version that It was first discovered in South Africa.
