Tasmania will receive 2340 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine each week for three weeks from late February, Premier Peter Gutwein has announced.
Mr Gutwein on Friday afternoon said doses will increase to 4680 a week from fourth week when a second dose is required by recipients.
He said the allocation of doses had been based on the state's proportion of people in priority groups.
Mr Gutwein said vaccinations will first be delivered at the Royal Hobart Hospital and administered at the Launceston General Hospital and North West Regional Hospital in March.
He said it was anticipated the state's priority population would be fully vaccinated by early April.
Those to receive the vaccine first include quarantine and border workers, aged care and disability staff and residents, and some health care workers.
Mr Gutwein said three areas in Western Australia remained high risk due to a positive coronavirus diagnosis last week though he anticipated these areas would be downgraded at some stage before the weekend.
He said 14 premises in Victoria and nine premises in New Zealand were still classed as high risk.
Mr Gutwein announced there would be a relaxation on capacity numbers for cinemas, theatres and entertainment venues effective immediately, subject to those places having a COVID safety plan.
He said capacity at venues would increase to 75 per cent of seating.
He said face masks must be worn if a distance of 1.5 metres could not be achieved between patrons.
Masks do not need to be worn by children under 12 years old or people with medical exemptions.
