Sumary of ‘One million doses’: PM’s huge vax news:
- The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has recommended the Moderna jab for people aged 12-59 and those people will be able to access the vaccine through pharmacies.
- The one million extra doses were sourced from European Union member states, the Prime Minister said.
- They were secured by Australian diplomats working closely with counterparts at the European Commission and in Sweden and Norway, the Prime Minister’s office said in a press release.
- While the ATAGI advice says children as young as 12 can begin rolling up their sleeves for Moderna jabs as soon as Monday, the European delivery won’t arrive at pharmacies for another few weeks.
