Macron stated on Friday that the Astrazeneca vaccine is ineffective for people who are above 60 years old. “What I can tell you officially today is that the early results we have are not encouraging for 60 to 65-year-old people concerning AstraZeneca,” he said.
Macron is questioning the decision that Britain has taken to delay the second dose of the covid vaccine. He is uncertain of the effectiveness of this vaccine since he stated that there is “very little information” regarding the vaccine that was developed by the British-Swedish company and Oxford University.
Macron said “I don’t have any data, and I don’t have a scientific team of my own to look at the numbers,” but he is waiting on a french expert team to take a closer look on this vaccine to make sure it is effective and safe they are expected to start with this procedure by next Friday.
