mRNA vaccines to be available to people of all ages

With Commonwealth vaccine supply now assured and young Victorians setting an incredible pace getting vaccinated, mRNA vaccines Pfizer and Moderna will be available to people of any age through state-run
vaccination centres, not just those under 60.
This change – which is now in effect – has been made possible after a boost to Moderna and Pfizer supply, and an extraordinary number of young Victorians stepping up to receive their first dose of the vaccine.
Victoria is well on the way to becoming one of the world’s most vaccinated jurisdictions. As of yesterday, 86 per cent of Victorians aged 16 and over had received their first dose – including 93 per cent of people aged 50 and
over, more than 95 per cent of people aged 70 and over, and 64 per cent of people aged between 12 and 15. Victorians 60 and over can book to receive Pfizer or Moderna at any of Victoria’s vaccination centres today. All Victorians can also walk-up without a booking to receive the Moderna mRNA vaccine at many state-run vaccination centres – because Victoria’s week of walk-up Moderna access is now in place permanently at:
• Sandown Racecourse
• Palm Plaza, Dandenong
• Bayside Centre, Frankston
• Barries Rd, Melton
• Ford Factory, Campbellfield
• Royal Exhibition Building
• MCEC
• Sunshine Hospital
• Plenty Ranges Arts and
Convention Centre
• Latrobe Uni, Bundoora
• Eastland Shopping Centre
• Shepparton Showgrounds
• Traralgon Racecourse
• Kiarivu Barracks, Mildura
The new vaccination campaign, to run on TVs, radios, print and online, captures the excitement of ordinary
Minister for Health Martin Foley said, “With all vaccines open to all Victorians aged 12 and over, and plenty of appointments available, there’s no reason not to book your jab today.”
