Staying up to date with your vaccinations
It’s important to stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations to make sure you’re best protected from the virus.
If you are aged 16 years or older, you can book now to receive a third dose (also known as a booster dose) of a COVID-19 vaccine.
As the cooler months approach, people who are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 are eligible to receive a fourth dose winter booster of a COVID-19 vaccine, more than four months after receiving their third dose.
The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the following groups receive a winter booster:
- Adults aged 65 years and older
- Residents of aged care or disability care facilities
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and over
- People aged 16 years and over with severe immunocompromised (refer to the ATAGI statement (external link). This group will be obtaining their fifth dose as part of their winter booster vaccine.
For more information, refer to ATAGI website (external link) or consult your GP or health professional.
