Listen:Scally Calls On Govt.To Reconsider Giving AstraZeneca Vaccination To People Over 65.

: 23/02/2021 - 09:20

A public health expert is calling on the Government to revisit giving the AstraZeneca vaccine to the over 65s.

They aren't receiving it because of a lack of data for its success in older people.

New research shows Scotland has cut its hospital admissions by 85 per cent, using a combination of the AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines.

Professor Gabriel Scally says Ireland should be doing the same.
