BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- The oldest COVID-19 vaccine recipient in China as of now is 106 years old, a Chinese health official said on Tuesday.

Over 500 million doses of Chinese COVID-19 vaccines had been administered to people aged above 60 in and outside of China, Zheng Zhongwei, an official from the National Health Commission, told a press conference.

Chinese vaccines have shown a good safety level among the elderly, Zheng said, adding that the rate of adverse effects among those over 60 is slightly lower than the rate seen in the 18-59 age group. Enditem
