The Federal Health Minister is optimistic that Novavax COVID-19 vaccines will be available in Australia in January.

Following a meeting with Novavax yesterday, Greg Hunt says he’s “very hopeful” the first international approval will be granted in the next week.

In Australia, he says things are “progressing well”.

“What does that mean? It means that we would have the first of the Novavax, subject to the TGA … and ATAGI approval, those two green lights, in January,” he told Neil Mitchell.

But Mr Hunt urged those who aren’t yet vaccinated against COVID-19 to get jabbed as soon as they can.

“Paul Kelly’s advice this morning, the chief medical officer: ‘The best vaccine is the one you can get, don’t wait’,” he said.

Mr Hunt also shared his thoughts on Victoria’s persistent COVID-19 case numbers, mistrust of politicians, and opened up about his decision to leave politics.
