COVID-19 vaccinations are now rolling out across Australia.

Do you know if you’re eligible to receive yours?

Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout has been gaining momentum since starting in February.

The vaccines are voluntary, universal, and free for all Australians. The Federal Government’s national rollout strategy aims to ensure that all Australians have access to a vaccine, for as many people to be vaccinated as possible.

COVID-19 vaccines administered have been approved for use by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), which assesses the safety, quality, and effectiveness of vaccines.

The vaccination rollout commenced with individuals belonging to the highest priority groups and has since evolved to include many more Australians.

This large amount of information can be overwhelming, so we’ve simplified it for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

The COVID-19 Vaccine National Rollout Strategy is the Federal Government’s 5-phase progressive vaccination scheme aimed at giving all Australians the opportunity to receive the vaccination, with members of the highest priority populations receiving their vaccinations first. High priority populations include aged care and disability care residents and workers, frontline healthcare workers and quarantine and border workers. Through the program, up to 61.6 million doses of vaccines will be administered to Australians.

Australia has strict requirements for the testing and approval of vaccines, and all vaccines are subject to rigorous testing by the TGA. The TGA has approved two vaccines for use in Australia. This means that these vaccines have met the TGA’s rigorous standards for safety, quality and efficacy. It will be free to all Australians.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends that the COVID-19 vaccine by Pfizer is preferred in adults aged under 60 years.

In people 60 years and over, ATAGI continues to advise that the benefit of vaccination with AstraZeneca COVID vaccine outweighs the risks associated with vaccination.
