Pfizer is available for anyone over the age of 12, while AstraZeneca is available for people aged 18 and older.

It comes as figures were revealed on Tuesday exposing where the lowest vaccine rates were across the state, with more than 605x`,000 people yet to receive a first dose of a Covid vaccine, with majority under the age of 50.
The state's lowest first-dose rate is found in the LGAs of Edward River, the Riverina, the City of Sydney, Byron and Randwick.
In metro Sydney, the Inner West, North Sydney, Waverley, and Canada Bay were also all below average.
While, in the regions, Bayside, Hunters Hill, Georges River Woollahra, Ryde and Canterbury-Bankstown all have vaccination rates below 85 per cent.
On Tuesday 75.2 per cent of people aged over 16 in NSW are fully vaccinated, while 90.7 of eligible people have received their first jab.
With the state is looking likely to reach 80 per cent of people fully vaxxed before the October 25 target, it remains to be seen if regional travel will be allowed or withheld pending inconsistencies between regional and metropolitan vaccine rates.
