    March 2021 Update:

    There are now two types vaccines from Pfizer and AstraZeneca approved for use in Australia to protect against COVID-19 with more potentially on the way.

    These two vaccines have gone through a rigorous approval process by the Therapeutic Group Administration (TGA). There will be no costs to the population to get these vaccines.

    These vaccines are not mandatory.

    The vaccines are gradually being rolled out in phases nationwide with the most vulnerable and frontline workers being prioritised first.

    For more information on the vaccines and to check your eligibility for the current phase of vaccinations, please go to:
