A press conference led by health minister Mark Butler has revealed that the Moderna Vaccine is one step closer to being made available to children under 6 years old, after the TGA granted provisional approval for its usage.

The announcement came just as COVID-19 cases have been rising, with the new BA4 and BA5 variants spreading through the country.
