The recent changes from ATAGI recommends the Pfizer vaccine as the preferred vaccine for people aged under 60. The incidence of Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome is significantly lower in people aged over 60 and the benefits of the vaccine still vastly outweigh any risk for people in this group as they are much more likely to become seriously unwell if they catch COVID-19.
People who have had a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine and did not experience any serious adverse effects, will be offered a second AstraZeneca dose. The ATAGI advice remains unchanged that it is safe to have the second dose of AstraZeneca and that an alternative vaccine should not be used at this stage for the second dose if aged under 60 years.
Patients under the age of 60 should book their vaccination at the Pfizer vaccination site. Bookings can be made through the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker and Clinic Finder.
Recommended minimum vaccine interval between COVID-19 and Influenza vaccine has been changed to 7 days. This interval can be shortened in special circumstances based on a clinical assessment.
