When should you get your first COVID booster shot?
Australians who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for at least six months are being encouraged to book their first booster shot.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration has recognised the Pfizer jab as a universal booster for all adults, to be made available from November 8.
Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt told Jim Wilson around 1.6 million Australians will become eligible for a booster by the end of the year.
He’s “very strongly” recommending everyone book their appointments as soon as possible.
“After Israel, we’ll also be one of the first nations in the world to have commenced a whole-of-country vaccination with booster program.
“It means, above all else, being as well protected as anybody in the world.”
