Latest advice on COVID-19 vaccinations

Did you know age continues to be the biggest risk factor for severe COVID-19 disease? Staying up-to-date with vaccinations significantly reduces your risk of serious illness or death.

The COVID-19 vaccine is free, safe and effective. You are eligible for a dose every 6 months if you are:

  • aged 65 years and over
  • aged 18 to 64 years and severely immunocompromised.

All other adults are eligible to get a dose every 12 months.

** You can receive your COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the annual influenza shot.
