Novavax appeals to ATAGI to change advice as vaccine uptake falls behind

But of the 51 million Novavax doses purchased by the Commonwealth and 13.3 million delivered, only 218,000 shots have been administered leaving millions destined for the bin as their expiry date looms.

Executives have attributed the low uptake of their Covid-19 vaccines in Australia to what they say was a poor policy decision by the federal government and its panel of immunisation experts.

Novavax claims its protein-based vaccine is not being discussed, featured within Australias immunisation strategy or actively offered through the various channels.

The companys chief medical officer Filip Dubovsky and its chief business officer John Trizzino have also been critical of ATAGIs decision not to recommend their vaccine as a first choice for booster shots.

I think theres certainly a direct link from that decision to the use of the vaccine, Mr Trizzino said.

Theres very little that we can do as a company to overcome what we believe is a poor policy decision.!!

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation has recommended Novavax as a booster only for people who cant or dont want to have one of Pfizer or Modernas mRNA vaccines, which it says are preferred.

Novavax has made multiple appeals to ATAGI to reconsider its advice, with Mr Trizzino saying they certainly have a right to have their opinion but the data and the science are in our favour.

I think its fair to characterise that we were disappointed in (ATAGIs) first recommendation based upon the data that had been submitted to them, Mr Trizzino.

And now were eager to make a supplemental presentation in order to reverse the decision.

Mr Trizzino said Novavaxs issue with ATAGIs advice which it is yet to change and may not still was water under the bridge.

Asked if he wanted ATAGIs decision making process to be made more transparent, Mr Trizzino said: Different countries approach this in different ways.
