The COVID-19 facility known as COVAX gives Australia access to a large portfolio of vaccine candidates and manufacturers across the world.
Australia has committed an initial $123.2 million to be part of the facility's purchasing mechanism, making it eligible to receive offers to buy vaccines when they become available.
This opens up supply options in addition to Australia's current vaccine supply agreements with Oxford University/AstraZeneca and the University of Queensland/CSL.
"Whoever finds a COVID-19 vaccine must share it," Health Minister Greg Hunt said in a statement on Wednesday.
