Vaccination is a personal choice. Your doctor can provide information to assist you to make an informed decision about vaccination.
The latest advice from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) is that a 2023 COVID-19 booster is recommended to increase COVID-19 protection. ATAGI advises a 2023 COVID-19 booster is recommended or encouraged for people with disability aged 5 years and over with significant or complex health needs.
You can book your COVID-19 vaccination by contacting your General Practitioner, pharmacy, Carer Gateway or Healthdirect. You can also book a COVID-19 vaccination by text message.
