Dear <<First Name>>
As you are all aware, this Thursday the health advice changed regarding the ages at which the AstraZeneca vaccine should be administered. From now on it will only be given to those who are over 60 years old. The changes were made on the recommendation of ATAGI (Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation). If you have any concerns you should talk to your doctor.
Australia currently has approximately 3% of its population fully vaccinated. Many front line workers, aged care residents and disability workers and people with a disability are still waiting for their vaccines, even though we were promised by the Morrison Government we were at the front of the queue and these groups would be fully vaccinated early this year.
To open up and to keep people healthy we need to be vaccinated; both the US and the UK will have most of their population fully vaccinated by July, a massive feat and something which would have been possible in Australia if it had been properly planned.
The link below is the NSW Government website where you can find out where you can be vaccinated and make an appointment. I encourage you to talk to your doctor or health professional and, on their advice, make an appointment to have your vaccine as soon as possible to keep everyone safe.
