What Vaccines are we delivering?

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the Pfizer vaccine for adults aged under 60 years. In people 60 years and over, ATAGI continue to recommend the AstraZeneca vaccine. More detailed information around these recommendations can be found here: About the AstraZeneca vaccine

If you have already had your first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, and did not experience abnormal side effects, ATAGI recommends you still receive your second AstraZeneca dose. This will provide you with greater coverage against severe illness from COVID-19.
