Local GP Clinics may soon be able to give the Pfizer covid-19 vaccine under new plans to expand the rollout.

Under the plan medical practices will receive 150 doses of the Pfizer vaccine each week from as early as next month.

Currently several Riverland GP Clinics administer the Astrazenca jab, however the Riverland General Hospital in Berri remains the sole distribution hub for the Pfizer vaccine locally.

Early in the rollout cold storage requirements were seen as a restricting factor for the Pfizer vaccine rollout.
