Following advice from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) today, which recommended 12- to 15-year-olds be added to Australia’s Covid-19 vaccination program, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed parents will be able to book Pfizer vaccination appointments for their children from mid-September.
In a press conference, Morrison said parents will be able to book appointments from Monday September 13 for appointments on Wednesday September 15 onwards. “Principally I would see that happening especially through the GP network and that provides the opportunity for family vaccinations,” he said.
All Australians aged 16 to 39 are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine from August 30, which was previously announced by the Prime Minister.
