The COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family and will help prevent the further spread of the virus. When you get vaccinated, you are protecting yourself and helping to protect the whole community. Higher vaccination rates makes outbreaks much less likely.

Some quick FAQ's to assist you
Please note important information regarding timing intervals between vaccines:
The preferred minimum interval between the Flu vaccine or other vaccines and COVID-19 vaccine in 2021 is 7 days. This approach may reduce the likelihood of overlapping adverse events following immunisation.
If you are planning to book in for your COVID-19 vaccine, please seek advice from your Pharmacist, GP or immunising health care professional about the most appropriate time to make your appointment, so the minimum interval of 7 days from your other vaccines can be observed.
Approved pharmacies in QLD, NSW and SA are able to provide the Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) vaccine to eligible people aged 18 years and over or the Spikevax (Moderna) or Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine to eligible people aged 12 and over.
Currently, the Department of Health advise mRNA vaccines (such as the Spikevax/Moderna vaccine or the Comirnaty/Pfizer vaccine) are preferred if you are aged 12-59.

Benefits of a booster dose
Two doses of COVID-19 vaccine provide very good protection, especially against severe disease.

A booster dose increases your protection against infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, severe disease or dying from COVID-19.
A booster dose will continue to protect you, your loved ones and your community against COVID-19.
