BOOSTER COVID-19 VACCINE

A booster dose of Pfizer (those aged 16 years or above ) or Moderna (those aged 18 years or above) who have received their first two doses of COVID-19 vaccine has been recommended to give the most protection for the longest period of time. You should receive your booster dose 3 months after your second dose (as per ATAGI recommendations from 31st January 2022).

(Note: If you have received a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine as an immunocompromised patient, it is not recommended to get a booster as well.)

DOSE 3 FOR IMMUNOCOMPROMISED PATIENTS

For patients who are severely immunocompromised, a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccination has been recommended. If you are severely immunocompromised, you should receive your third COVID-19 vaccine at 2 months after getting your second dose.

If you are unsure whether you should be receiving a third dose, feel free to book in to chat with your GP about it.
