The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has recommended a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine for people aged 18 and older, who have had their second dose at least four months ago, including people with disability living in shared residential accommodation settings.
Booster vaccinations are encouraged as it makes a significant difference in maintaining your immunity and the effects of COVID-19, including the newer strains. To book a booster dose, use the COVID-19 Clinic Finder.
ATAGI has recommended a third primary dose of a COVID-19 vaccine for people aged 12 or older, who are severely immunocompromised. ATAGI are recommending an interval of 2-6 months after the second dose, for the third dose. To see what immunocompromising conditions and therapies apply, read the ATAGI statement.
