“No doubt related to the fact that we gave expert advice on the interval between AstraZeneca to six weeks, we made big reservations. I’ll give you a breakdown of aging. 18-29, 5707, 30-39, 5082, 40-49, 298,500 in age group 50-59. Under 2,000 in 60-69 and about 620 bookings in plus 70. In other words, on that single day, one of AstraZeneca’s biggest-ever booking days, three out of four days were for someone under 40.
This is a choice made by hundreds of thousands of Victorians. What that means is that millions of Victorians will be vaccinated with a double dose with AstraZeneca. It’s safe, it’s effective, and it’s available now and that means that for many who are in a conversation with a senior doctor, pharmacist or nurse, at a vaccine center, it’s the best vaccine for you.”
