Australia's COVID-19 vaccine rollout is set to be thrown into further chaos, with the government's vaccine advisory body to recommend the AstraZeneca vaccine should only be given to those aged 60 and older.

Until now, the AstraZeneca shot was only to be given to people aged 50 and above, but last week a 52-year-old woman died after developing blood clots associated with the vaccine.
More to come.
