Vaccines for 5-11 Year Olds

.

The following information has been provided by the Department of Health in relation to the vaccines now available for 5-11 year olds:

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children who are 5 to 11 years of age.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has approved the use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in children aged 5 to 11 years.

The recommended schedule for vaccination in this age group is 2 doses, 8 weeks apart. The interval can be shortened in special circumstances to a minimum of 3 weeks, such as in an outbreak response, prior to the initiation of significant immunosuppression or international travel.

Children who turn 12 after their first dose may receive the adolescent/adult formation of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to complete their primary vaccine course.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is expected to be available for this group from 10 January

Planning is underway to provide a safe, positive and appealing environment for 5 to 11 year-olds at vaccination centres.
