Elderly carers, nurses and doctors, disabled residents and hotel quarantine workers were among the first Australians to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Castle Hill, New South Wales today

They were joined by Australian Defense Forces and Border Forces personnel, as well as the Australian Chief Medical Officer, Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer and Prime Minister to be vaccinated

The COVID-19 vaccination program was officially launched today ahead of the official national rollout across Australia on Monday

Jane Malysiak, 84, from Marayong, New South Wales, was the first person in Australia to receive a COVID-19 vaccine

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said it was a milestone in Australia’s comeback after the COVID-19 pandemic

“We have always found our own Australian way through this pandemic and with remarkable success compared to so many other countries around the world,” said the Prime Minister

“Every Australian is given the opportunity to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine that has been proven safe and effective by our own medical experts

“Our first priority is to protect our most vulnerable Australians and the frontline workers who protect us all, and that is exactly what it does when we get vaccinated

“As COVID-19 vaccines roll out across the country, we will be asking as many Australians as possible to get vaccinated to protect themselves, their families and their communities from this highly infectious disease”

People who live and work in elderly and disabled care as well as in quarantine, border and frontline health workers will receive the COVID-19 vaccine first

The Australian government has a comprehensive plan to offer COVID-19 vaccines to all Australians by the end of October 2021

Plans start at around 60 on Monday000 Pfizer / BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses to be given to priority populations

According to the Australian government’s plan, quarantine and border workers and geriatric carers are to be vaccinated by April 2021

Minister of Health and Elderly Care Greg Hunt said, “Vaccines are being prioritized so that those who are most at risk and vulnerable are given access first”

“The Australian government has given clear advice on the stages of who will have access and when”

“Today we released a simple authorization checker here to answer a few questions and find out what stage you can access vaccines at. You can find it in the Australian government,” said Minister Hunt

As part of the Australian vaccination strategy, the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine begins with the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine and will include the AstraZeneca / Oxford vaccine from March 2021

Australian Government Received More than 150 Million COVID-19 Vaccine Doses Melbourne produces over 50 million government-ordered doses of AstraZeneca

The Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine is administered through vaccination clinics in hub-and-spoke hospitals in every state and territory, and in elderly and disabled care facilities across the country

The number of vaccination clinics in hospitals will increase as more doses of our approved vaccines arrive in Australia

Vaccine teams will be going to geriatric care facilities – 240 of them in 190 domestic locations – this week to deliver the vaccines on site

People get the AstraZeneca vaccine initially at GP respiratory clinics, general practitioners who meet certain requirements, Aboriginal Controlled Community Health Services, and government vaccination clinics

Both the Pfizer / BioNTech and AstraZeneca vaccines require two separate doses for a person to be fully immunized – Pfizer / BioNTech 21 days apart and AstraZeneca 12 weeks apart
