AstraZeneca: German reports on low efficacy on over-65s ‘completely incorrect’ (DW)

DW: AstraZeneca: German reports on low efficacy on over-65s ‘completely incorrect’. “The firm’s response followed reports in Handelsblatt and Bild, two German daily newspapers. Both cited unnamed members of Germany’s government as saying that the vaccine had a poor efficacy rate among people above 65. Bild put the figure at ‘less than 10%,’ Handelsblatt at 8%. The newspapers further reported that German government officials didn’t expect the vaccine to be approved for use on over-65s by the European Medicines Agency regulator as a result. The German Health Ministry also contradicted the claim, suggesting that the source for the 8% figure must have mixed up their numbers.”
