Labels for COVID-19 vaccines
To enable timely distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, international labels will be used during the initial global rollout, including in Australia.
Some information typically present on the Australian label may be absent and/or modified on the international label, as well as additional information present that is not relevant to the Australian context.
Batch release assessment of COVID-19 vaccines
The TGA ensures there is an independent quality assessment of every batch of vaccine supplied in Australia. COVID-19 vaccines will have a priority release schedule.
Learn more about the Batch release assessment of COVID-19 vaccines.
After the initial registration of a vaccine, the sponsor may request changes to the registration details, which require additional assessment and approval by the TGA.
