Booster Dose Of Covid-19 Vaccine

Current evidence suggests that immunity to Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) wanes, and there is a reduction in protection against infection following vaccination over time, particularly from 6 months onwards. This is more relevant to the older people where waning is more pronounced. A booster dose helps improve the protection you have from your first 2 doses of the vaccine.

 

Booster dose refers to an additional vaccine dose after the two doses of the following COVID-19 vaccines available in Australia: Comirnaty (Pfizer), Spike Vax (Moderna) or Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca).

COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

Booster vaccine doses are available for people 18 years or older most at risk from Covid-19 who have had a 2nd dose of a vaccine at least 6 months ago.

 

Based on current evidence, Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) advises that the highest priority groups to receive booster doses are those with risk factors for severe COVID-19 and/or those at increased occupational risk of COVID-19 notably:

 

People at greater risk of severe COVID-19:

individuals aged 50 years and older, those with underlying medical conditions, residents of aged care and disability facilities, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults. Also, Individuals aged 12 years or older who are severely immunocompromised.

 

The recommended interval for the 3rd dose for immunocompromised people is 2 to 6 months after the 2nd dose of vaccine.

 

An mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) is preferred to Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) for this 3rd dose as per Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommendation.

No. Any other vaccine can be given at least 14 days apart from the 1st and 2nd dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. However, ATAGI recommends that it is acceptable to co-administer a COVID-19 booster vaccine dose with an influenza vaccine.

Pregnant women are routinely offered Pfizer mRNA vaccine (Comirnarty) at any stage of pregnancy. This is because the risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 is significantly higher for pregnant women and their unborn baby.

 

Global surveillance data from large numbers of pregnant women have not identified any significant safety concerns with mRNA COVID-19 vaccines given at any stage of pregnancy. Furthermore, there is also evidence of antibodies in cord blood and breastmilk, which may offer protection to infants through passive immunity.

 

Pregnant women are encouraged to discuss the decision in relation to timing of vaccination with their health professional.

You do not need to avoid pregnancy after vaccination. The vaccination cannot give you or your baby Covid-19.
