WHO recommends Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine for all adults including over 65s
Scientists advising the World Health Organisation (WHO) have recommended the use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine in all adults – including those aged over 65 – after a number of countries opted not to adminster the jab to that group.
The WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (Sage) on Immunisation issued interim recommendations on the vaccine, saying the jab could be given to people aged 18 and above “without an upper age limit”.
