How does the AZ vaccine know how old you are? In other words why does the blood clot risk decrease in older people?

Australians are going to have difficulty travelling internationally for a very long time because we'll be one of the few western nations that haven't innoclulated the majority of our population.
Will also require airlines to agree to transport unvaccinated people when full planeloads are allowed againOne possible way to deal with that scenario may be to require those wanting to travel to undergo testing and produce a negative result within 72 hours of departure from Australia. The same could be done when returning back home again.
Of course that would require destination countries agreeing to this also.
