WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MY COVID-19 BOOSTER SHOT?

On October 28, 2021, The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation announced new recommendations on

COVID-19 booster  or “top up” vaccinations.

Here are the key points:

  • A booster can be considered after 6 months of your last dose (dated on your vaccine certificate)
  • Pfizer Cominarty is recommended for booster shots, irrespective of previous vaccines the patient has had
  • Although not preferred, Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) can be used:
  1. If there were no contraindications or precautions for previous use
  2. Astra Zeneca can also be used as a booster dose if a significant adverse reaction has occurred after a previous mRNA vaccine dose which contraindicates further doses of mRNA vaccine (e.g., anaphylaxis, myocarditis).
  • Most patients will not require a booster until January, but be sure to book early to secure your spot.
  • Frontline workers who had vaccines before June can book online for an earlier booster shot.
  • There is no eligibility restriction but high priority groups include over 50s, people with underlying medical conditions, people with disabilities or in aged care, or Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander adults.
  • It is now acceptable to co-administer a COVID-19 booster vaccine dose with an influenza vaccine.
  • Booster doses are not currently recommended for those aged under 18 years, . In this age group, severe COVID-19 is uncommon, and the primary course of COVID-19 vaccines generates a strong immune response, so the benefit from additional doses of vaccine is likely to be small. Full recommendations can be viewed here.
