Researchers and companies across the world are developing potential vaccines for COVID-19. The Australian Government is tracking vaccine progress and working with developers to organise access for Australians if vaccines are successful.
The Australian Government requires robust scientific data and analysis before supporting a vaccine candidate. This is a critical part of the scientific process. We continue to follow our rigorous regulatory procedures to ensure that any vaccines supplied in Australia are effective and safe for use.
COVID-19 vaccines will be available in phases. Groups of people get the vaccination at different times.
We have created an online tool to help you figure out when you’ll be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
There are new fact sheets on COVID-19 vaccines in Easy Read format, now available on the Department of Health website.
They include information on who, where, and how you can get a vaccine.
This decision guide is for people who are frail or very old, including those in residential aged care facilities. The guide is designed to help make an informed decision about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
