* Only one parent/guardian permitted to attend our vaccination clinic to accompany a young person aged 12-17 years old.

  • Pfizer (Comirnaty) COVID-19 vaccine: Dose 3 - for all severley immunocompromised
  • Pfizer (Comirnaty) COVID-19 vaccine: Booster - after 5 months of receiving Dose 2

To be fully vaccinated, you need to have 2 doses of the same vaccine.  You cannot mix vaccines in your primary course of vaccination, unless you have experienced a severe reaction from the first dose.

Booster doses and third primary doses:

  • COVID-19 vaccine boosters are now available.
  • Pfizer (Comirnaty) is the ATAGI recommended COVID-19 vaccine as a single booster dose.
  • Eligible to those > 18 years old who have received Dose 2 of a COVID-19 vaccine > 5 months ago.
  • Booster doses are not currently recommended for those aged < 18 years old.
  • Booster doses can be co-administered with the influenza vaccine.
  • You can safely get a Pfizer (Comirnaty) COVID-19 vaccine dose 3 dose regardless of which COVID-19 vaccine you received for your initial 2 doses (primary course).
  • The AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) COVID-19 vaccine is not preferred for use as a booster dose, but it can be used in individuals who have received an AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) COVID-19 vaccine for their first two doses if there are no contraindications or precautions for use, or a significant adverse reaction has occurred after a previous mRNA vaccine dose which contraindicates further doses of mRNA vaccine.
  • You can also get a booster dose if you have completed an initial COVID-19 vaccination course overseas with a COVID-19 vaccine recognised by the TGA.
  • Booster doses helps prevent waning immunity (loss of protection) against COVID-19 infection.  Booster doses are different from third primary doses, which are given to those who are immune suppressed so they can have the same level of protection as the general population.  Booster (ie fourth doses) doses are not currently recommended for immunocompromised people who have had a third dose.
  • Third primary doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for people who are severely immunocompromised are provided as part of the primary course, they are not boosters.  ATAGI recommends that the interval for the third dose between 2 to 5 months after the second dose of the vaccine. A minimum interval of 4 weeks may be considered in exceptional circumstances (eg: outbreaks, anticipated intensification of immunosuppression).
