COVID vax 4th Booster at Queen street Medical Centre Moruya

If you’re 30 or over – you can now have your 4th COVID-19 vax

An additional booster dose, known as the fourth dose, is now available to people 30 years and older. This may be a fifth dose for some people. If you have had COVID-19, wait at least 3 months before getting your next dose.

Who should have this 4th Covid vaccination?

Department of Health advises all people:

  • 50 years or older – however ATAGI has just advised people aged 30 to 49 years old can receive a fourth dose if they choose
  • a resident of an aged care or disability care facility
  • severely immunocompromised (this will be a fifth dose)
  • Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and aged 50 years and older
  • 16 years or older and with a medical condition that increases the risk of severe COVID-19 illness (see the table below for expanded groups)
  • 16 years or older with disability with significant or complex health needs or multiple comorbidities which increase risk of poor outcome.

Everyone 5 years and older is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

It’s important you stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations, to ensure you have the most protection you can get, and your digital certificate remains valid. Find out what you need to do to stay up to date.
