  • The Public Health Agency decided to restart Covid-19 vaccinations with Astra Zeneca's drug on Thursday but only for people 65 and older.
  • It initially suspended the drug after a handful of suspected side effects were reported in Europe.
  • State epidemiologist Anders Tegnell now says there's enough data showing the drug is safe but the agency is not recommending the vaccine right now for anyone under 65.
