Winter Booster Covid vaccines & Flu vaccines

ATAGI recommends an additional booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine to increase vaccine protection before winter for selected population groups who are at greatest risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and who have received their primary vaccination and first booster dose. These groups are:


  • Adults aged 65 years and older

  • Residents of aged care or disability care facilities

  • People aged 16 years and older with severe immunocompromise (as defined in the ATAGI statement on the use of a 3rd primary dose of COVID-19 vaccine in individuals who are severely immunocompromised)

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and older.

The additional winter booster dose can be given from 4 months or longer after the person has received their first booster dose, or from 4 months after a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, if infection occurred since the person’s first COVID-19 booster dose.

Boosters help to maintain a high level of protection against COVID-19. If you’re due for a booster, don’t delay.


Flu vaccine clinics will run from mid April- Bookings available online.
