COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout
Update March 2021
The Therapeutic Goods administration (TGA) – the body that approves vaccines and medication in Australia, has approved a COVID-19 vaccine, made by Astra Zeneca.
This is the vaccine that will be administered to the public under the Federal Governments roll out plan – Phase 1b and subsequent phases.
At this stage Leichhardt General Practice will not be administering the COVID-19 Vaccine for Phase 1b.
understand that our patients are very keen to receive their vaccines and we will do our best to let you know where there will be local vaccination centres who have been authorised to administer doses as per the government’s vaccine roll out strategy.
Vaccination centres will be very dependent on the Government’s allocation and at this stage there is no definite indication as to timing of delivery and how many doses will be received.
We are of the understanding, however, that the supply and demand of the COVID-19 vaccination will reach an equilibrium at some stage as dose production ramps up.
