    COVID VACCINATION Update 4 – Pfizer preferred vaccine for people 16 to 59 years

    COVID VACCINATION Update 4 – Pfizer preferred vaccine for people 16 to 59 years

    The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine (Comirnaty) as the preferred vaccine for those aged 16 to under 60 years. This updates the previous preferential recommendation for Pfizer (Comirnaty) over COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca in those aged 16 to under 50 years.  The recommendation is revised due to a higher risk and observed severity of thrombosis and thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) related to the use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine observed in Australia in the 50-59 year old age group than reported internationally and initially estimated in Australia.

    New heroin treatment option yielding positive results among patients at Melbourne injecting rooms

    New heroin treatment option yielding positive results among patients at Melbourne injecting rooms

    Summer’s* fascination with heroin started when she was just a teenager, but she never thought she would become addicted. The 34-year-old’s life was completely controlled by her six-year heroin addiction. She says she would still be dependent if it wasn’t for a new form of opioid replacement therapy.

    It was only when she used heroin at the North Richmond supervised injecting room that she was offered a new treatment – a once-a-month injection. “If it wasn’t for the injection, I’d still be in the same cycle,” Summer said. “If you put heroin in front of me, I’d kick it in the drain, I just have no interest in using ever again.”
