SA COVID-19 vaccine update

South Australia’s COVID-19 vaccination program started yesterday.
Thank you to all the frontline workers who are rolling up their sleeves and getting vaccinated.

The first 4,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have already arrived. Each week SA Health will continue to receive more stock from the Commonwealth Government to enable the vaccination of priority groups.

In the coming months, South Australia will progress through a carefully planned phased roll-out to offer a vaccine to all those who want to be vaccinated.
