Virologist Mark von Ronst recommends that people over the age of 65 not use the astrogenic vaccine. “With the current data you can not use it for people over 65. This does not mean that it is not a usable vaccine. It may be a respectable vaccine for those under 65,” Van Ronst said Thursday evening in Derzek.
There have been previous reports that the vaccine from the British-Swedish Astrogeneka is less effective for people over 65 years of age. Today / Thursday, the German Vaccine Commission decided not to use the vaccine on people over 65 years of age.

According to virologist Mark von Ronst, the current data are sufficient to provide advice against the use of AstraZeneca in people over 65 years of age. According to him, the use of Pfizer or Moderna is highly recommended for people over 65 years of age. According to Van Ronst, that does not mean that the AstraZeneca vaccine is completely unusable. It may be a “respectable vaccine” for those under 65 years of age.
The AstraZeneca vaccine is already in use in the UK, but has not yet been approved by the European Medicines Regulatory Agency (EMA). The EMA will give an opinion on the Astrogenega vaccine on Friday. After that, the European Commission, the executive body of the European Commission, has yet to give its final approval.
In the United Kingdom, millions of people have already been vaccinated with AstraZeneca, including those over 65 years of age. “They made a guess there. We need to see what the security will be,” Van Ronst said.
