Vaccine eligibility is increasing in Australia, with more and more groups now booking an appointment to get the jab. Currently, anyone over the age of 16 can receive a vaccine in Australia.
Covid vaccines are FREE to everyone in Australia, and according to your age group and other criteria, it will depend on which vaccine you receive. As it stands, if you are 16-39 years old, you can receive the Pfizer jab, and if you are 18-39, you can get either the Pfizer or AstraZeneca.
