The federal government has secured a deal with Pfizer to receive about one million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine per week from 19 July. This will significantly boost the vaccination rollout program, given that Australia received an average of 300,000 to 350,000 doses of the Pfizer jab each week during May and June. The vaccination program will also be ramped up in Sydney to combat the harbour city’s growing COVID-19 outbreak; an additional 150,000 doses of both the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines will be made available, with a focus on vulnerable people in suburbs that have a high case load. The state government has not ruled out a further extension of the Greater Sydney lockdown.
