Can vecchio (old) be used to describe people or not?

In the course Italian 1 the word ‘vecchio’ (old) is taught, but not used in a sentence to learn like ‘giovane’ (young).
I heard somewhere else that ‘vecchio’ can’t be used to describe people :thinking:
Is that true?

I’m not a native speaker, but other than the fact that anziano/-a is only to be used for humans, vecchio/-a can be used with both objects and people.
