COVID-19 Vaccinations


The COVID-19 vaccination rollout in Australia has gained significant momentum since its commencement in February 2021. As part of the Australian Government's national strategy, the vaccines are voluntary, universal, and free for all Australians. The goal is to ensure that every individual in the country has access to a vaccine, with the aim of vaccinating as many people as possible. The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved the vaccines for use, ensuring their safety, quality, and effectiveness.

How COVID-19 Vaccines Work

Vaccines play a crucial role in training the immune system to recognize and eliminate harmful germs such as bacteria and viruses that can cause severe illness. By strengthening the immune system, vaccines enable it to identify and fight against specific pathogens. The Commonwealth Department of Health has created a helpful video that explains in detail how vaccines work in the body after administration.

Approved COVID-19 Vaccines in Australia

As of early 2022, Australia has approved five different vaccines for COVID-19 immunization. These vaccines belong to various categories and have undergone rigorous evaluation and testing for their efficacy and safety. The approved vaccines include:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty [mRNA])
  • AstraZeneca (VaxZevria [viral vector])
  • Moderna (Spikevax [mRNA])
  • Novavax (Nuvaxovid [protein vaccine])

While these vaccines are currently available, ongoing research and development continue to explore other vaccine options. The primary objective of all approved vaccines is to induce an immune response that protects individuals from severe forms of COVID-19. Further information regarding the different types of vaccines can be found on the Commonwealth Department of Health website.

COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shots

According to the recommended guidelines, boosters for COVID-19 are available to all adults who have gone 6 months or longer since their last booster or confirmed infection, whichever is most recent. Boosters are especially important for individuals at higher risk of severe illness, such as those aged 65 and over, as well as adults aged 18 and over with medical comorbidities, disability, or complex health needs. For adults aged 18-64 without risk factors and children and adolescents aged 5-17 with medical comorbidities or significant health needs, boosters may be considered based on individual risk assessment. However, booster doses are not currently recommended for children under 18 without risk factors or for children under 5 years old. It is recommended to receive the booster before June 2023, particularly for those at higher risk, to prepare for the winter season.
By receiving a booster dose, individuals can ensure that their immunity against COVID-19 remains strong and long-lasting. To book a COVID-19 booster, visit the our above booking calendars.
