A third-dose Pfizer shot has been provisionally approved for use as a booster, the Therapeutic Goods Administration has announced.

The booster shot is expected to be delivered to Australians aged over 18 at least six months after the “completion of a Covid-19 vaccine primary series”, no matter which vaccine was originally received.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison told the Today Show National Cabinet would meet next week to further discuss the booster shot program.

More to come.
