COVID-19 boosters

It’s important to keep your COVID-19 vaccinations up-to-date, which means having all boosters you are eligible for. Getting boosters will provide an extra layer of protection against COVID-19.

  • All Queenslanders aged 16 and over who have had 2 COVID-19 vaccine doses more than 3 months ago should get a third COVID-19 vaccine dose (first booster).
  • People aged 50 and over, and those at greater risk of severe illness, are recommended to have a fourth dose (a second booster, also called a winter dose), from 3 months after the first booster dose.
  • People aged 30 to 49 can also get a fourth dose (second booster) if they choose.
  • Even if you’ve had COVID-19, you should still get your boosters after an interval of 3 months.
  • Children aged 5 to 15 should get 2 COVID-19 vaccine doses. Boosters are not currently recommended for this age group unless they are immunocompromised.

Use the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Finder to find a location to get your booster or additional doses. Speak with your GP or treating specialist to discuss your individual circumstances if you are immunocompromised. You do not need to return to where you got your primary course of COVID-19 vaccine. The date you had your vaccine doses is on your COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement.
