Thousands Protest Against Covid Vaccine In Australia

Anti-vaccination protesters have gathered across Australia ahead of the launch of the country's coronavirus inoculation programme.

Protests were held in cities including Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, with participants chanting slogans like: "My body, my choice."

The rallies were largely peaceful, but police made several arrests in Melbourne, local media reported.

The national rollout of the Pfizer vaccine is set to begin on Monday.

Australia's medical regulator earlier this week also granted provisional approval for the vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University, which is expected to be rolled out next month.

Both vaccines have undergone extensive safety checks and are already being used in several countries.
