Many of you will have heard the new vaccine advice regarding the AZ vaccination for COVID. It is now recommended in Australia for over 60’s. Pfizer vaccination is recommended for under 60’s. This is due to the relatively increased risk of Thrombosis and Thrombocytopaenia Syndrome (TTS) – ie blood clots, in the 50-59 year age which although still very rare, is higher than we would like in this age group. This new advice replaces the previous advice to use Pfizer vaccination in under 50’s only. 
Now, if you are under 60, you are recommended to wait for the Pfizer vaccination.
If you have already had one dose of AZ vaccination, the advice is to receive your second dose as the TTS risk is very low if you didn’t have a problem the first time round.
Sanctuary Clinic only stocks the AZ vaccination presently and will be following the above new advice.

For all individuals under the age of 60, you are recommended to have the Pfizer vaccination, which is currently unavailable to General Practices, although this may change in the future.
