The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has released updated recommendations for an additional COVID-19 vaccine dose for highest risk people in 2023. These recommendations are in addition to the previous ATAGI COVID-19 vaccine booster advice published in February 2023.
ATAGI recommends that all adults aged ≥ 75 years should receive an additional 2023 COVID-19 vaccine dose if 6 months have passed since their last dose.
Consider an additional dose if 6 months has passed since your last dose.
Discuss with your doctor.
- Adults aged 65 to 74 years
- Those aged 18 to 64 years who are severely immunocompromised
ATAGI continues to encourage all adults who were recommended to have a COVID-19 vaccine dose in February 2023, and who have not yet had one, to receive a vaccine dose as soon as possible.
