COVID-19 vaccine for 12 to 15 year olds and people aged over 60

From today, children aged 12 to 15 and people aged over 60 will be able to book a Pfizer appointment at SA Health COVID-19 vaccination clinics.

All SA Health clinics will offer vaccines to children 12 to 15 years, except for the pop-up clinics at Adelaide Myer Centre and Pooraka.

People who already have an existing booking for their first dose of AstraZeneca at an SA Health vaccination clinic, should not cancel their appointment. They will have the option to have Pfizer or AstraZeneca at their appointment.

Appointments are in high demand, and more will be added as more vaccine becomes available.

Bookings can be made online via the SA Health website at www.sahealth.sa.gov.au/COVIDvaccine.
