Vaccinations for 5- to 11-year-olds
“While we await ATAGI’s advice, the TGA’s provisional approval of the Pfizer vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 is very welcome news for Victoria.
This is an effective vaccine that has been safely administered to millions of young children around the world.
Vaccinations are already a part of life for families with young children - and now we’ll have another one to help keep them as safe as possible at school and home.”
