Energy Minister Angus Taylor says the whole point of the government’s vaccine rollout approach – given the unprecedented pace vaccine development has moved at – is to ensure the government can “make changes as new information comes in”.
“What this means is, the over 50s can keep taking the AstraZeneca vaccine… it’s the over 50s who are most vulnerable. I’m certainly not worried about the vaccine. I think the data on this is pretty clear, it’s very safe,” he said.
“We’re able to use a range of different vaccines for different demographics.”
