Australia approves Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine as the blockade expands

The government announced on Monday that a third brand of COVID-19 vaccine will soon be available to adults in Australia and that one million doses will be distributed next month.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison Press release The National Vaccine Regulatory Authority (TGA) has approved Moderna Shots, and 25 million doses have already been secured.

“Our world-class regulator, TGA, gives Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine a green light and believes it is safe, effective and the best way to stop serious illness and hospitalization. “I will,” said Morrison.

“Our national plan is to receive more than 1.3 million vaccines in just one week, and vaccination deployments are skyrocketing,” he added. “Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca are now available, helping more doctors, nurses and pharmacists put jabs in their arms.”

The first million doses will arrive in September and will be rolled out from approved pharmacies and other providers across the country. The Prime Minister said these are part of a total of 10 million doses scheduled to be delivered to Australia by the end of this year.

An additional 15 million boosters will arrive from Modana in the first half of 2022.

Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine has so far been approved domestically only for people over the age of 18. The TGA is reviewing the data and said it will announce further decisions in the coming weeks on whether to support young Australian jabs aged 12-17.

As of August 9, approximately 22% of adults in Australia’s 26 million population were fully vaccinated. The government expects to provide the vaccine to all Australian adults who wish to receive the vaccine by the end of the year.

Thousands of people have recently participated in protests in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as part of a “global rally for freedom” against government regulations. Previous rallies in Sydney attracted only a few hundred attendees, but recent protests have increased dramatically.

Lifeline Australia, a mental health and suicide prevention service, also hit a record high on August 2. This is due to the blockade of Sydney and Brisbane.
