The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for use in Australia, declaring the vaccine meets the high standards of safety, efficacy and quality required for use.
The provisional approval applies to people over the age of 16, who’ll need to get two doses at least three weeks apart.
Australia has bought ten million doses of the vaccine, but the Prime Minister says delays in overseas production mean the vaccination timetable has been changed.
