Protect Our Older Community With Covid Vaccine

Department of Health

Older age continues to be the biggest risk factor for severe COVID-19 disease.

Everyone aged 75 years and over is recommended to have a COVID-19 vaccination every 6 months.

For those aged 65 to 74 years, a COVID-19 vaccination is recommended at least every 12 months.

You don't have to wait 6 months anymore between your last infection and having a COVID-19 vaccination.

COVID-19 vaccines are free, safe and effective. The vaccine will protect our older community and you, from serious illness.

If you have a family member, friend or loved one living or working in an aged care home, please help them to get their COVID-19 vaccine now.

COVID-19 vaccination helps reduce the risk of serious illness, hospitalisation and death.
