Pfizer jab recommended in Slovenia for under 30s

By: J.S., STA

Health Minister Janez Poklukar announced the government will follow the recommendation of the national advisory committee on immunisation to use the Pfizer vaccine for under 30-year-olds.

In general, the use of mRNA vaccines will be recommended over viral vector vaccines. The latter can still be used for people with a contraindication to mRNA COVID-19 vaccines or at a special request. The decision comes after a 20-year-old woman died due to brain haemorrhaging and blood clots a fortnight after she received the single-shot Janssen vaccine.
