BOOKINGS for 12 to 17 year olds to get the Moderna vaccination will soon open in the northern beaches.
The national rollout will include a number of pharmacies across the local government area, with some set to get stock as early as Monday, September 20.
Earlier this month the Therapeutic Goods Administration granted provisional approval of the Moderna Covid vaccine for children aged between 12 and 17. The recommended dose and dose interval is the same as that for the adult population - two full doses given 28 days apart.
"Provisional approval for use in the 12-17 years age group has been made following careful evaluation of the available data supporting safety and efficacy," the TGA said.
"The vaccine has also received regulatory approval or authorisation in this age group in several jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom, Canada, the European Union and Switzerland."
Moderna is the third Covid vaccine to have been approved for use in Australia, following the AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines.
