A “reflection” on the administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine to young people is needed. The coordinator of the CTS and president of the Higher Health Council, Franco Locatelli, tells Rainews24. In Italy, the vaccine is recommended for people over 60. Further reflection, says Locatelli, is necessary especially after the recently identified case of thrombosis: an 18-year-old girl is in serious condition. Previously, she had been given the vaccine. “In these hours there is a supreme attention to catch all the signs that can alert you to any side effects that lead to consider changes of indication. The AstraZeneca vaccine is already preferentially recommended for subjects over 60 years of age, because the relationship between the benefits deriving from vaccination and any risks becomes incremental with age and particularly favorable above this threshold “, says the CTS coordinator.
