People aged 18 years and older may receive a booster at least four months after receiving their second dose of any of the Covid-19 vaccines registered for use in Australia (Astrazeneca, Pfizer, Moderna). The Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine will be offered as the booster dose, regardless of the Covid-19 vaccine received for the first or second dose. If you had a severe reaction to an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) such as anaphylaxis or heart inflammation or you prefer to have the Astrazeneca vaccine and you had Astrazeneca for your first 2 doses, please make an appointment to discuss this with one of our GPs.

You can find the date of your 2nd dose on your Covid-19 Digital Certificate in the NSW Services app or Medicare app or on your MyGov account.
