GPs do not need to worry about opening a multidose vial of a COVID-19 vaccine for a single patient even if other doses end up wasted, says the federal Department of Health.

All COVID-19 vaccines on offer in Australia come in multidose vials, such as the six-dose vial for Comirnaty and 10-dose vial for Spikevax.
