AMSTERDAM, April 7 (Reuters) - The European medicines watchdog will on Wednesday issue guidance on whether AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine should be used in people under 60, and the Netherlands is pausing its use in under-60s, the Dutch Health Minister said in a Facebook post.

Hugo De Jonge, in charge of the Dutch response to the pandemic, wrote that the government had decided to pause AstraZeneca vaccinations for people under 60 pending advice from the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which was holding a briefing at 1400 GMT.

"The EMA will issue that advice for people younger than 60 today," he wrote on Facebook. (Reporting by Toby Sterling and Bart Meijer; Writing by Anthony Deutsch; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
