The TGA has granted provisional approval to Novavax – the first protein COVID-19 vaccine approved in Australia. 

The vaccine will be available to Australians aged 18 and above and will be given in two doses three weeks apart. 

Novavax will not be used as a booster shot. 

The man leading Australia’s vaccine rollout, Lieutenant General John Frewen, said he expected one or two per cent of unvaccinated residents would be holding out for the new vaccine.

‘If anyone has decided that’s what they want to wait for, they’ll be able to get it as quickly as they can,’ he told 4BC radio on Wednesday.
