If it has been at least 6 months since your last COVID-19 vaccine or confirmed infection, adults are eligible to receive a booster shot. This applies to whichever event occurred most recently.
For individuals who are at a higher risk of severe illness, it is especially recommended to get a booster. This includes:
– Individuals aged 65 or above.
– Individuals aged 18 or above with medical conditions, disabilities, or complex health needs.
The new bivalent COVID-19 vaccines offer protection against both the original strain of COVID-19 and the Omicron variants. A booster shot provides a high level of protection against serious illness caused by COVID-19.
You can find the date of your last COVID-19 vaccine on your COVID-19 digital certificate, which can be accessed through your myGov account or the Express Plus Medicare App. Healthcare providers, including pharmacists, can also assist in checking your immunisation history.
