The Ballarat Health Services CEO says it’s too early to tell if blood clot fears will impact the vaccination of local frontline workers.

It comes as health authorities recommend that young people wait for the Phizer product to become more available.

Dale Fraser says the advice will cause BHS to reflect and pause.

 "We are running both vaccines at the moment so we have some mitigation against some immediate change and we aren't quite sure what that might mean in the long run," he said.
