The WHO’s Strategic  Advisory Group of experts on immunization (SEZ) also studied the Sinovac vaccine. Based on their evidence, WHO has recommended that the vaccine be given to people 18 years of age and older.

Two doses of the vaccine should be registered in a period of a month. 51% of those vaccinated with Coronavac were immune to the virus whereas 100% of the vaccinated were prevented from being hospitalized.
