Two doses of COVID-19 vaccine provide very good protection, especially against severe disease.

A booster dose will make sure the protection from the first two doses is even stronger and longer lasting, and should help prevent spread of the virus.

The booster is only for clients aged 18 years and older. 

Note: A three dose primary course is approved for children under 18 years IF they have a severe immunocompromised state.

A booster dose increases your protection against:

  • infection with the virus that causes COVID-19
  • severe disease
  • dying from COVID-19.

A booster dose will continue to protect you, your loved ones and your community against COVID-19.

You can book a booster dose if it has been four months or longer since your second dose of COVID-19 vaccine (this will change to 3 months from Monday 24 January).

 

Regardless of which vaccine was given in the first two doses it is recommended to have a single dose of Pfizer as a booster. Boosters are not mandatory. We are unable to give a booster dose early.

AFTER YOUR VACCINATION

As with any vaccine, you may have some side effects after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

Common side effects after the COVID -19 Pfizer vaccine include:

  • pain or swelling at the injection site
  • tiredness
  • headache
  • muscle pain

  • redness at the injection site
  • nausea
  • enlarged lymph nodes
  • feeling unwell
  • pain in limb
  • insomnia
  • itching at the injection site.

These side effects are usually mild and usually go away within one or two days. If you have a side effect that worries you, please call us on 07 4080 1000.
