Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine recommended for adults of all ages, say scientists advising the World Health Organisation

Scientists advising the World Health Organisation have recommended the use of the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in adults of all ages.

The WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunisation has issued interim recommendations on the vaccine, saying that the jab could be given to people aged 18 and above “without an upper age limit”.

“That means people over the age of 65 years of age should be given the vaccination,” Dr Alejandro Cravioto, chairman of the advisory group, told a press briefing.

It comes after a number of countries have opted not to give the jab to those over the age of 65.
