AZ Vaccine Banned in Australia

AstraZeneca is no longer available in Australia…
There was a link between the AZ vaccine and a rare but serious side effect, thrombosis with thrombocytopenia (TTS)
AstraZeneca is no longer available as of 20 March 2023,

so no further cases of AstraZeneca-related TTS can occur in Australia.


Evidence shows that mRNA vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna, are more effective at boosting protection from Covid-19,

so these vaccines are being recommended for the autumn booster programme.

In Australia, the rate of AstraZeneca-related TTS

Aged 60 and over

2 per 100,000 people vaccinated with AstraZeneca

Aged under 60

2 to 3 per 100,000 people vaccinated with AstraZeneca

Symptoms typically occurred between 4 and 42 days after a first dose

TTS can cause long-term disability and death.


blood clotting (thrombosis)

combined with low platelets (thrombocytopenia)

Blood clots can appear in different parts of the body such as the brain or abdomen

No risk factors were identified that predicted who developed TTS.

Cases were reported in all ages, and in both men and women.

TTS appeared to be more severe in younger women.

Almost all reported cases of TTS occurred after the first dose of AstraZeneca.

The risk of TTS was much lower after the second dose.
