Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for Western Australians 60 and older

Western Australians aged 60 and above will be eligible to receive a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine from next week.

 

From 6.30am Monday, September 20, people in this age group can visit www.rollup.wa.gov.au to register and book an appointment at a State-run COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

 

The move means all Western Australians aged 12 and above will be eligible for a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination from Monday next week following a further expansion of the vaccine program.

 

WA Health State-run COVID-19 vaccination clinics are available in more than 100 locations across Western Australia, with sites listed on the HealthyWA website.

 

In line with the national health advice from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation, people aged 60 or older who have already had a first dose of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine should have their second dose of the AstraZeneca, as different vaccines cannot be mixed.

 

To date more than 84 per cent of people aged 60 and older have received their first doses and more than 60 per cent of people aged 60 and older are fully vaccinated.

 

 

Health Minister Roger Cook said, "I am confident that this move will see a shift in people 60 and above booking in to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

 

"I urge anyone who is eligible and hasn't yet taken their opportunity, to register and book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment as soon as they can."
