The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends an extra COVID-19 vaccine dose for higher risk groups.
This recommendation includes residents of disability care facilities and people aged 16 years and older with severe immunocompromise, as defined by ATAGI. People who do not meet this description but believe they need a Winter dose should talk to their GP.
ATAGI recommends that these people should receive their COVID-19 Winter dose from 4 months after their initial booster dose.
