Prime Minister received his first dose of the Pfizer corona vaccine alongside Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly and a small group of aged care residents and staff and frontline pandemic workers.

On Saturday, thousands of people attended anti-vaccine rallies in major Australian cities to protest what they incorrectly believed to be mandatory vaccinations.

"And she's taking part in what is a very historic day for our country".

"We have always made our own Australian way through this pandemic and have done so with considerable success compared with so many other countries around the world", the Prime Minister said. The vast majority of its population will be injected with the AstraZeneca vaccine by the end of October.

In multicultural Australia, the government is urging minority groups to receive a coronavirus vaccine.

"We're here making some very important points, that it's safe, that it's important and we need to start with those who are most vulnerable and on the front line".

The country is enjoying a second day without a single new COVID-19 transmission in the community, officials said.

Chinese Ambassador to Colombia Lan Hu, who was also present to welcome the arrival of the shipment, said the fight against the pandemic "has been the priority" of bilateral relations since previous year and that the arrival of the vaccines represents an opportunity to help the country return to normality.

Heading the vaccination queue was aged care resident Jane Malysiak, 85.

"It is about confidence", Health Minister Greg Hunt told ABC's Insiders program on Sunday on Mr Morrison getting the jab at the start of the national rollout.

"The Australian Government has given clear advice on the phases showing who will have access when".

"I'll re-affirm that with the secretary today, but we've already done that with my office, and I re-affirmed yesterday that there has been none commissioned or instituted since this dispute arose". It lets you answer a few questions and find out the phase in which you'll be able to access vaccines.

Under the Australian Vaccination Strategy the COVID-19 Vaccine rollout begins with the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, and will include the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine from March 2021.

"We would also like to thank the government and the Colombian people for the confidence that they have placed in the Sinovac vaccine", the ambassador said.

There will be special vaccination clinics set up at hospitals in every state and territory, and in aged care and disability care facilities across Australia.

Vaccination teams will go into aged care facilities - 240 of them across 190 locations nationally this week - to deliver the vaccines on-site.
