Revamp means GPs will be able to vaccinate over-50s from next month

GP respiratory clinics and state and territory hubs will be offering the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to the over-50s from 3 May

Australians over the age of 50 will be able to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine from next month as the nation's leaders reset the coronavirus vaccination rollout. 

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be restricted to patients under that age, except for high-risk groups such as aged and disability care residents and workers.

On Thursday Prime Minister Scott Morrison chaired national cabinet where state and territory leaders agreed on a rejig of the rollout in the wake of updated health advice.
