If you’re 16 years or over and had your second COVID-19 vaccine three or more months ago, you will be eligible for your booster dose from Friday 21 January.
Presently At YFD we have Pfizer booster clinics on Thursdays and some Saturdays. Book for your booster dose online via HotDoc under ‘Covid-19 Vaccine dose 3 Pfizer’ if you are eligible. https://www.hotdoc.com.au/medical-centres/erina-NSW-2250/your-family-doctors-at-erina/doctors?purpose=covid-vaccine
If you can’t find a time that suits you at our vaccination clinic there are plenty of other options around the Central Coast by following the link https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/booking/
A COVID-19 booster dose strengthens your immune system and helps you maintain a high level of protection against the virus.
Evidence shows that a shorter interval to your booster dose will provide better protection against new COVID-19 variants like Omicron.
- You are eligible for a booster vaccination if you are:
- Fully vaccinated (have received 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine),
- aged 18 years and over, and
- received your second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 3 months ago.
If you can’t remember when you received your second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, check your COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement, which you can find through myGov.
It doesn’t matter if you had a different vaccine for your first two doses, you can have Pfizer or Moderna for your booster.
Please do not attend our clinics if you are a close contact to someone with Covid or have any symptoms. We can reschedule your appointment. If you have recently had Covid it is recommended you wait a few weeks for your booster until you have completely recovered.
