Victoria’s Chief Health Officer says the reason those under 50 are being advised to avoid the AstraZeneca vaccine, when possible, is simply a case of risk-benefit analysis.

Brett Sutton told 3AW Breakfast it was still unclear whether there was any age-link to rare blood clotting episodes.

“It’s about the risk-benefit,” he explained.

“The risk of serious illness (from COVID-19) is lower, the younger you get.”

Professor Sutton will be among those to receive the vaccine today.
