COVID-19 vaccine Information & FAQ’s

Australians are encouraged to rely on reputable sources of information to help make informed choices and stay up to date on the latest information about COVID-19 vaccines.

The vaccines being used in Australia are very effective. Getting a COVID-19 vaccination will prevent serious illness and loss of life due to COVID-19.

The Australian Government aims to make COVID-19 vaccines available to as many people in Australia as possible in 2021, with Australia's COVID-19 vaccines being made available in phases. There will be limited doses of COVID-19 vaccines initially, so certain groups at highest risk of infection will get the first doses. There is no cost associated with the vaccine. For more information see Australia’s vaccine program.

Vaccines are tested to ensure they are safe before they are approved for use. Before vaccines are made available in Australia, they need to pass strict Australian safety standards set by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. Find out more about the vaccines available in Australia and their approval.

With new vaccine developments every day, it’s normal to have questions or concerns, and possibly feel hesitant about getting a vaccine.
