Germany's vaccine commission STIKO said on Thursday that AstraZeneca's Covid-19 jab should only be administered to people aged 64 and under due to the lack of data regarding the vaccine's effectiveness for older people.

"There is currently insufficient data to assess the efficacy of the vaccine for persons aged 65 years and older," the scientific committee said in the resolution made available by the German Health Ministry.
