Flinders University Health Service continues to offer COVID-19 vaccinations, including fourth dose for eligible individuals.
With the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recently updating recommendations for a winter dose, more Australians are now eligible to receive their fourth dose of vaccine.
ATAGI has updated the recommendations for a winter dose of COVID-19 vaccine to help reduce severe disease from the emerging surge of Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 sub-variant infections, and to reduce the burden on hospitals and the healthcare system in coming months.
The updated recommendations are:
- Adults aged 50-to-64 years are now recommended to receive a winter booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
- Adults aged 30-to-49 years can receive a winter booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, however the benefit for people in this age group is less certain.
- The interval recommended between a recent SARS-CoV-2 infection or the first booster dose and a winter booster dose is now 3 months.
To make a booking for your COVID-19 vaccination, please call 08 8201 2118.
Health Services is open throughout the year, including during semester breaks. It is located at the Bedford Park campus on level 3 of the Student Services Centre – between the Sports Centre and Yungkurrinthi Trruku.
