COVID-19 vaccination – Video – COVID-19 vaccine safety and approval process

In this video, Doctor Sakshi provides information about the safety process that COVID-19 vaccines go through before being approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).


Hi, my name is Dr Sakshi and I’m a doctor.

I am going to explain how we know Australia’s COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.

COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Australia were able to be quickly developed at high standards, because of researches and scientists all over world working together, with higher levels of funding and access to new technologies.

Australia has strict safety, effectiveness and manufacturing standards for vaccines. Australia’s COVID-19 vaccines have passed the Therapeutic Goods Administration’s, strict tests, which means they are safe and effective in preventing people from getting very sick and even from dying.

The vaccines will protect you, your family and the community.
