COVID: France allows elderly to get AstraZeneca vaccine | DW | 02.03.2021


French Health Minister Olivier Veran said Monday that people over 65 with existing health conditions could receive the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine.

"Anybody aged 50 or over who is affected by co-morbidities can get the AstraZeneca vaccine, including those between 65 and 74," Veran said on France 2 television.

The announcement could affect more than 2 million people.

Until now, France and many EU countries had only approved the shot for younger people, citing a lack of data.
