ATAGI now recommends a 2023 COVID -19 vaccine booster dose for adults aged 65 and over, as well as adults between 18-64 years who have medical comorbidities, if their last COVID-19 vaccine dose or confirmed infection (whichever is the most recent) was six months ago or longer and regardless of the number of prior doses received.
ATAGI advises the following groups should consider a 2023 booster dose if their last COVID-19 vaccine dose or confirmed infection (whichever is the most recent) was six months ago or longer, and regardless of the number of prior doses received.
Keep all your boosters up to date and keep your family and the community safe.
Booster doses will make sure the protection from your first two COVID-19 vaccinations is even stronger and longer lasting.
