AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine approved for use in Australia by TGA


Australia’s medical regulator has approved the Oxford University-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine for use in Australia.

It is the second vaccine given the green light by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) after it approved the Pfizer vaccine last month.

In a statement, the TGA said it had approved the vaccine for use in people aged over 18 years.

It said while people over the age of 65 “demonstrated a strong immune response” to the vaccine, there were not enough people infected by COVID-19 in the clinical trials to determine the overall efficacy for that age group.
