Last month, about 30 elderly people who were vaccinated and had side effects in Norwegian nursing homes died. Norwegian officials issued a warning.
All the dead were residents of nursing homes over 80 years old.
At that time, the Australian authorities said they would seek more information on the matter.
When the TGA approved Pfizer's vaccine last week, it did not set an upper age limit for those who can be vaccinated, and issued a statement against overseas concerns.
They said they worked closely with the European Medicines Agency and Pfizer on further investigations.
"These cases were discussed at the recent meeting of the European Medicines Agency's (EMA) Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee, and it was concluded that there are no particular safety concerns, and that there is no causal relationship between vaccination and death.
TGA then concluded that the Pfizer vaccine poses no specific risk to the elderly.
"Older people can get this vaccine, there is no upper age limit."
The TGA said that the EMA meeting, and discussions in North America, the United Kingdom, and Europe have "reached similar conclusions."
The federal government has purchased XNUMX million Pfizer vaccines and will be launched at the end of this month. First-line medical and epidemic prevention personnel and residents of nursing homes will give priority to injections.
The TGA is also considering approval of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine, and the government has secured a supply of 5100 million vaccines.
