Getting vaccinated helps protect our community against COVID-19. The more people who are vaccinated, the greater the protection for those vaccinated and the whole community. The vaccines being used in Australia are very effective at preventing serious illness and loss of life from COVID-19.
The vaccines are safe and free.
Who can get vaccinated?

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has reviewed their advice on the AstraZeneca vaccine. They recommend Pfizer as the preferred vaccine for people aged under 60 years.
This does not change who is currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, but it means Pfizer is the preferred vaccine for people under 60. Find out more here.
