Updated AstraZeneca Easy Read fact sheet

April 2021

In March this year, the Australian Government released information about the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. The Government has since updated this information to explain why the AstraZeneca vaccine is only for people aged 50 years or older. This comes after a recent discovery that the AstraZeneca vaccine may cause blood clots in people under 50 years old, but this side effect is rare.

We worked with the Government to update the existing Easy Read fact sheet about the AstraZeneca vaccine. This fact sheet will give people more information about:

  • who the vaccine is most suitable for
  • the safety of the vaccine
  • who the vaccine is not suitable for.

You can check it out on the Department of Health website.
