Additional 2023 COVID-19 booster dose

ATAGI recommends that all adults aged ≥ 75 years should receive an additional 2023 COVID-19 vaccine dose if 6 months have passed since their last dose.

ATAGI advises the following groups should consider an additional 2023 COVID-19 vaccine dose if 6 months have passed since their last dose, after discussion with their healthcare provider:

  • All adults aged 65 to 74 years, and/or
  • Adults aged 18 to 64 years with severe immunocompromise.
  • Within the above groups, an additional 2023 COVID-19 vaccine is likely to be of most benefit for people who:
    • Have no known history of SARS-CoV-2 infection (and therefore are unlikely to have protection from hybrid immunity),
    • Have medical comorbidities that increase their risk of severe COVID-19, or disability with significant or complex health needs, or
    • Reside in a residential aged care facility.
