ATAGI have now recommended that adolescents aged 12-17 years can receive the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine for their primary course of COVID-19 vaccination. This recommendation provides another vaccine brand option, in addition to Pfizer and Moderna, for individuals in this age group. 

A Novavax primary schedule consists of 2 doses, administered 8 weeks apart. Those with severe immunocompromise should receive 3 doses. 

Whilst Novavax is not currently registered for use as a booster dose in adolescents aged 12-17 years, ATAGI advises that it may be used for this purpose, when Pfizer is not suitable for that person.
