Why get a booster dose
It's important to keep up-to-date with your COVID-19 vaccines, even if you are already vaccinated or you have had COVID-19. The protection from previous doses or a COVID-19 infection may weaken with time. You may be at higher risk of severe disease if you get COVID-19. A booster can prevent the possibility of hospitalisation or death from COVID-19 illness.
It may take 7 days for a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose to work.
