Those under 55 who have received a first dose of AstraZeneca against Covid-19 should have their second with another vaccine, Health Minister Olivier Véran said on April 9, before an official announcement expected in the morning.
“It will be confirmed normally today, it is totally logical”, declared Olivier Véran on April 9, stressing however that the official announcement fell to the High Authority for Health (HAS), which will hold a press conference in 10 hours.
The Minister of Health thus suggests that those under 55 who have already received a first dose of AstraZeneca’s anti-Covid vaccine should receive another vaccine for their second injection.
The HAS had suspended this vaccine for those under 55 years of age on March 19, due to cases of thrombosis spotted in Europe, in particular about thirty in the United Kingdom.
