Bizri: AstraZenka vaccine should not be given to those under 30 years old

The head of the National Committee for the Management of Corona Vaccines, Abdel-Rahman Al-Bizri, confirmed, in a television interview, that the committee’s stance is clear and explicit, and that the AstraZenka vaccine should not be given to those under 30 years old, indicating that work must be on providing the best vaccine in a proper manner.

Al-Bizri considered in an interview with the mtv channel that what happened was an irresponsible decision by the Ministry of Health, when it allowed taking the vaccine for those under 30 years old, pointing out that the committee has a meeting again and the recommendation may be raised to 40 years, indicating that a large number of Pfizer vaccines will arrive in the coming period.
