Southern NSW will lose some of its Pfizer jabs as part of the reallocation to vaccinate year 12 students in Sydney.
Following that news, NSW Health has advised that some of Murrumbidgee Local Health District's allocated Pfizer vaccine supply will be temporarily reallocated to Sydney.
"This reallocation only affects clinics run by Murrumbidgee Local Health District," a statement said.
But it appears anyone in a non-priority group with a current first dose Pfizer booking may be affected, as MLHD says they will be "contacted to discuss their options":
"At our Murrumbidgee Local Health District Clinics:
- Vaccination will still be available for health care workers
- If you have had your first dose of Pfizer in our clinics, we will still be able to provide your second dose as scheduled
- Anyone with an existing booking for a first dose of Pfizer will be contacted to discuss their options
"MLHD clinics will continue to offer AstraZeneca to people over 40 years.
"Pfizer & AstraZeneca vaccines are also available through other providers in our communities."
MLHD advises people to access the online eligibility checker at bit.ly/3hYDCq7 or call Health Direct on 1800 022 222.

In most cases vaccination locations will be included on the eligibility checker, however people are encouraged to check with their local GPs, Aboriginal Medical Services, Respiratory Clinics and Pharmacies to see what their options are.
