COVID-19 vaccine resources and information for Gippsland health professionals

The Australian Government Department of Health (DoH) has provided the following information to deliver safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines for Australia.


ATAGI recommends COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine for those aged 16 to under 60

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine (Comirnaty) as the preferred vaccine for those aged 16 to under 60 years.

This updates the previous preferential recommendation for Comirnaty over COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca in those aged 16 to under 50 years. 

The recommendation is revised due to a higher risk and observed severity of thrombosis and thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) related to the use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine observed in Australia in the 50-59 year old age group than reported internationally and initially estimated in Australia.
