Elderly people in Poland will not be given the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, the minister in charge of the program said on Monday, but he added that a final decision would be made after recommendations from medical experts, according to a report by news agency PAP.

Europe's medicines regulator on Friday approved AstraZeneca, but said there were not yet enough results for people over 55 to determine how well the vaccine will work. Michal Dworczyk, the prime minister's top aide, who has been put in charge of vaccinations, said "We are waiting for a clear recommendation from the medical council and then... we will take a decision".
