To say there has been a bit of confusion about the Covid-19 vaccine for the under 60’s over the last weeks is an understatement!

Hopefully the following helps clear a few things up!

  • The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine as the preferred vaccine for those aged 16 to under 60 years.
  • The COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca can be used in adults under 60 years for whom;
    • The Pfizer vaccine is not available
    • The benefits are likely to outweigh the risks for that individual
    • The person has made an informed decision based on an understanding of the risks and benefits.
  • At present at YFD we only have the AstraZeneca vaccine available.
  • Sites for Pfizer vaccinations on the Central Coast can be found via the eligibility checker (for patients aged between 40 – 60, and/or in category 1a and 1b) and we encourage eligible patients to check availabilities at these vaccination clinics.
  • Advice and guidelines do change frequently based on best available evidence and the availability of vaccines.
