Anyone over the age of 18, and those over the age of 55, can be given the AstraZeneca vaccine at Belgium, according to the latest recommendations of the Senior Health Council.

Based on the latest data and recommendations from the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the Senior Health Council has confirmed that the previous age limit of 55 can be lifted.

“AstraZeneca can be used by people aged 18 and over, without age limit “, said the vaccine specialist Pierre Van Damme, as broadcast by AMPE.

The Council refers to British studies which show, inter alia, that AstraZeneca vaccine significantly reduces the risk of hospitalization even for people over 70 and even over 80 years.
