COVID Vaccine Boosters
From Monday 8th November 2021 Covid vaccine booster doses will be available for all individuals six months from second dose.
The recommended vaccine is Pfizer.
Studies from overseas have shown that immunity from all vaccines wanes over time. Having a booster dose helps maintain protection against COVID-19.
This will be especially important when WA borders open in coming months.
See link below from ATAGI with more detailed information.
If you received your second dose at another vaccination centre, please bring proof of your vaccination when you attend for your booster.
