Australia Set To Release 85 Million Doses Of COVID-19 Vaccine

Australia says it will be able to avail up to 85 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine by January. It will however, depend on the results of two promising trials that show signs of success.

Australian prime minister Scott Morrison said the country struck two deals to roll out free vaccines in 2021 if approved. And by January, Australia’s 25 million people could begin receiving vaccines but there were no guarantees.

“The agreement puts Australia at the top of the queue, if our medical experts give the vaccines the green light,” the PM said.

Oxford University partnered with AstraZeneca pharmaceutical company to produce one of the vaccines. The other vaccine will come from the University of Queensland and CSL.

Over 26,000 COVID-19 cases were reported in Australia with 769 COVID-19 related deaths. The state announced on Sunday that it would be extending its strict lockdown for two more weeks.

The people of Melbourne will not be allowed to visit other households for gatherings at least until November according to recent findings.
