Germany will only give Johnson & Johnson vaccine to 60-year-olds
Monday, 10 May 2021
Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine will only be given to people over the age of 60 in Germany, following a decision from German Health Minister Jens Spahn and his colleagues from the Länder on Monday.
Younger people could still voluntarily opt for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, after medical advice, according to the German news agency DPA.
Denmark announced last week that it would no longer use the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at all, citing a “possible link” to blood clots in combination with a low platelet count and the vaccine.
While it’s known that 36,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be delivered to Belgium this week, no delivery schedule has yet been released beyond this, according to the latest date from the Vaccination Taskforce on Saturday.
