From tomorrow, anyone over the age of 16 living in country South Australia will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Premier Steven Marshall said vaccinations will be made available at SA Health-operated sites in regional areas.
He said the move is a national first and will help to further ramp-up the vaccination rollout across the state.
However, some regional clinics may only offer the Pfizer vaccine – for people under 50 – and some may only offer AstraZeneca – for people over 50.
Mr Marshall said regional residents aged 16 and above would be able to get the vaccine at 35 country clinics.
“We want as many people to get that jab,” he said.
“It’s really important that when people are eligible to go and have their jab, that’s exactly and precisely what they do.
“We’ve worked very hard to increase our country capacity.”
More to come.
