Australia's First Coronavirus Vaccine Has Been Approved For Mass Use

Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has officially approved the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine.

It's the first Covid-19 vaccine to be approved for mass use in Australia and it's hoped the first jabs will be rolled out in a matter of weeks.

The TGA said the vaccine met the high safety, efficacy and quality standards required for approval and they are happy to allow the public to be inoculated.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison is pleased the vaccine has been declared safe and hopes it will be the first step to giving the pandemic the boot.

"Our priority has always been to keep Australians safe and protect lives and livelihoods.

"Today's approval is another big step forward for our community, particularly in the protection of our most vulnerable people."
