9th Apr 2021

The primary health care service for Aboriginal people in Central Australia has reassured clients that AstraZenica vaccines are still safe for people over the age of 50.

The Central Australian Aboriginal Congress is continuing to encourage clients to come into their clinic at 25 Gap Rd in Alice Springs or their other clinics in town.

Congress have also confirmed that supplies are also now in Mutitjulu, Utju, Santa Teresa and Amoonguna.

Dr Colin Marchant from Congress told CAAMA they were looking to get alternative supplies of vaccines, but he encouraged those who are 50 years of age or older to make an appointment as soon as possible at one of their clinics for the vaccine.
