ATAGI has recommended an additional COVID-19 winter booster dose

ATAGI has recommended an additional COVID-19 winter booster dose for those at higher risk of serious illness.

From April 2022, you’ll be eligible for an additional winter COVID-19 booster vaccine (second booster dose) if you are:

• Aged 65 years or over • An Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person aged 50 years and over • A resident of an aged care or disability care facility • Aged 16 years and over and severely immunocompromised (for this group the winter booster dose will be the fifth COVID-19 vaccine dose (three primary doses, first booster and winter booster)

You can get your COVID-19 and flu vaccines at the same time. Most people who are eligible for the COVID-19 winter booster dose will also be eligible for a free flu vaccine, available from mid-late April 2022.

If you haven’t had your first booster dose yet, make sure to get it as soon as possible to strengthen your protection against COVID-19.
