Australian health supplements company Blackmores has begun marketing a new Covid Vaccine alternative.

“Taken once daily, our new Multivitamin plus Covid vaccine supplement acts as guaranteed protection against Coronavirus,” says Blackmores CEO John Welsh.

“It also contains the key vitamins to ensure your body gets all the nutrition it needs on a daily basis.”

The company says its supplement is “far safer and more effective” than the AstraZeneca vaccine, which has been associated with blood clots.

“Our product also gives consumers an alternative to traditional Covid vaccines which have been rolled out in Australia much slower than expected,” says John Welsh.

“And for consumers who don’t like needles, the Blackmores vaccine comes in easy to swallow pills.”

The supplement was given approval by the Therapeutic Goods Administration on Thursday and is expected to hit shop shelves early next week.

More to come.
