People under 60 who were given as part of the first dose vaccine companies AstraZenecashould be moved to the queue waiting for another type of vaccine. This is a recommendation from the Standing Committee on Vaccination (Stiko) in a draft that was presented on Thursday, April 1.
The effect of AstraZeneki wears off after 12 weeks
Health Minister of Germany Jens Spahn The (CDU) wants to discuss the recommendation with the federal state health ministers next Wednesday. He said on Twitter: “Stiko’s revised recommendation on second immunization creates clarity for the approximately 2.2 million citizens under 60 who received AstraZeneca’s first vaccine in recent weeks.” The politician assured that these people would be able to receive an mRNA preparation (BioNTech or Moderna). It will start in mid-April, as AstraZeneca has only been in use in Germany from the beginning of February.
