Is the AstraZeneca vaccine safe for over 60s? Side effects ‘mild and short lived'

“As with all medications, we have some side effects but they have often been mild and very short lived.

“The protection provided by the vaccine against COVID-19 far outweigh the very small risks we have seen.

“As with all the drugs we give in the UK, safety checks have been done in the vaccine before we undertook the national rollout.

“We simply would not have vaccinated people if we didn’t know the vaccine was safe, as seen in the trials and now as we vaccinate more and more people, we are seeing additional evidence of how well it works and its safety.”
