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:

  • Residents of aged care or disability care facilities
  • People aged 16 years and older who are severely immunocompromised
