The Premier of New South Wales has announced that pharmacies will begin offering the AstraZeneca vaccine to people over the age of 18 this week. But that only applies to pharmacies in Sydney’s hotspots-at least for now. Chelsea Ferkai, chairman of the Australian Pharmaceutical Association’s NSW branch, said pharmacies at the COVID hotspot in Sydney were “brought in” but the majority of pharmacies in other regions have not yet provided vaccines. .. However, even so, people over the age of 18 cannot be vaccinated. The provisions of the law allowing pharmacies to vaccinate COVID-19 meant that people over the age of 18 could only be given AstraZeneca if they were in a “hotspot.” News: In areas with low access to medical services, there are 22 local pharmacies involved in pilot vaccine programs. However, unless those areas become hotspots, vaccinations can only be given to people over the age of 40 at this time. Felkai suspects that Newcastle pharmacies will begin to be brought in between mid-August and late August. “But unless you’re in a hotspot area at that time, we’ll only vaccinate people over the age of 40.” Our journalists are working hard to bring the latest news in the area to the community.
