On 8 April 2021, the Commonwealth Government accepted recommendations from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI).

The current recommendation is that the Pfizer vaccine is preferred over the AstraZeneca vaccine for adults under 50 years of age who have not already received a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

In response to the announcements, the ACT has made adjustments to its COVID-19 vaccine clinics.
