Are you eligible for a winter dose? A winter dose of COVID-19 vaccine is now available for people at the greatest risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Eligible people who have received their primary vaccination and third dose will be able to receive their COVID-19 vaccine winter dose.
Those eligible include:
- Adults aged 65 years and older
- Residents of aged care or disability care facilities
- People aged 16 years and older who are severely immunocompromised
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and older.
They can receive their winter dose four months after receiving their third dose, or from four months after a confirmed COVID-19 infection, if infection has occurred since the person’s third dose.
