Stay up to date with your fourth COVID-19 vaccination

Fourth dose encouraged for those aged 30 and over

You are up to date with your vaccinations if you have received all recommended doses for your age and health status.

The COVID-19 fourth dose is available for anyone aged 30 and over. It is recommended for those aged 50 years and older.

If you are severely immunocompromised, this extra booster is a fifth dose of the vaccine.

It is recommended you wait 3 months after having a COVID-19 infection, and/or your last dose, before getting a COVID-19 vaccination.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group (ATAGI) recommends you should get your fourth dose if you are:

  • 50 years or older
  • A resident of an aged care or disability care facility and aged 16 years or older
  • 16 years or older and severely immunocompromised
  • Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and aged 50 years and older
  • 16 years or older with a medical condition that increases the risk of severe COVID-19 illness
  • 16 years or older with a disability.

ATAGI has advised that people aged 30 to 49 years old can receive a fourth dose if they choose.

COVID-19 vaccinations are available at participating GPs, pharmacies, and Aboriginal Medical Services.

For more information, consult your GP or health professional.
