If AstraZeneca isn’t widely recommended for seniors, who should get the vaccine?


On Friday, Health Canada approved the vaccine for people over the age of 18. But, days later, the committee that advises the Government of Canada on vaccines seemed to contradict that. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recommended Monday that the shot not be given to people over the age of 65. The new guidelines cite “limited information” about its effectiveness in older people as the reason it’s not recommending the shot be used in seniors.
