Fourth dose now available for more Western Australians

Western Australians aged 30 and over can get their fourth dose

Fourth dose encouraged for those aged 30 and over

It’s important all Western Australians are protected against COVID-19 by staying up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations.

The COVID-19 fourth dose is available and encouraged for anyone aged 30 and over.

This additional booster is a fifth dose for people who are severely immunocompromised.

The interval recommended between a recent COVID-19 infection or last dose is 3 months.

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.

People in these groups can walk-in without an appointment and get their fourth dose at COVID-19 vaccination clinics, and can receive a vaccination at GPs, pharmacies and Aboriginal Medical Services.

For more information, consult your GP or health professional.
