Working through the vaccination vexations

After Australia’s vaccination experts threw another curveball at the COVID program last week, our national leaders yesterday recommitted to working together to get Aussies immunised ASAP. The Pfizer vaccine is now preferred for the under 60yos. The lifting of that threshold puts more pressure on the supply of Pfizer vaccine in what the rollout’s coordinator Lieutenant General John Frewen calls “a resource-constrained environment”… He says Aussies will have more access to the Pfizer vaccine from August onwards. And Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly again urged those who have received their first AstraZeneca dose to get their second. Some good news about the program: more than 6.5 million doses have been administered across Australia, meaning 26.7% of the adult population have had at least their first dose.
