The health authorities indicated that “evidence of the effectiveness of the vaccine for this age group is not sufficient.”
At the same time, the health authorities confirmed that “there is no concern about the safety of the vaccine for this group according to the results of clinical trials, nor according to the results of vaccinating the elderly in countries that have approved the use of the” AstraZeneca “vaccine and began to vaccinate people over 65 years of age.
