The Continued Importance of COVID-19 Vaccination

COVID-19 vaccination remains the best way for people to protect themselves from serious illness or death from COVID-19. Here’s why it’s still important to get vaccinated:

  • Preventing severe illness: Vaccines are the best protection against severe illness,
    hospitalisation, and death from COVID-19.
  • Protection for everyone: Vaccinations are particularly important for those aged 75
    years and over or with severe immunocompromise that increase their risk of severe COVID-19.
  • Keeping your guard up: Protection from COVID-19 wanes over time. Regular
    vaccinations, tailored to one’s age and health needs, ensure ongoing protection

After Your Vaccination

After receiving any vaccine, you may experience minor side effects. Most side effects are mild and last no more than a few days.

Common reactions to COVID-19 vaccinations include:

  • a sore arm
  • headache
  • low level fever
  • muscle pain
  • chills
  • tiredness, or
  • joint pain.


You can use the COVID-19 vaccine side effects symptom checker if you have concerns about any symptoms after your vaccine. The checker is also available through the National Coronavirus Helpline, 1800 020 080, 24 hours a day.
