Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccination rollout

This page aims to support GPs, general practice staff and other primary health care providers working on the frontline across Western Australia to support the COVID-19  Vaccination Strategy as part of the Australian COVID-19 vaccination policy.

Updated Advice: AstraZeneca Vaccine

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has recommended new changes to the Australian COVID-19 Vaccine Program including a preference for the use of the Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine in adults aged under 50 years.  ATAGI has further recommended that:

  • The AstraZeneca vaccine should only be used in adults aged under 50 where the benefits clearly outweigh the risk for that individual and the person has made an informed decision based on an understanding of the risks and benefits.
  • People who have had the first dose of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca without any serious adverse effects can be given the second dose, including adults under 50 years.
