Recommendations on the use of a 3rd Primary Dose of COVID-19 Vaccinations for People Severely Immunocompromised

The Federal advisory body ATAGI (Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation) has recommended a booster/supplemental Covid-19 vaccination for those who are heavily immune suppressed. The Health Minister has indicated that this will be available from 11 October. This gives the MG community a chance to strengthen our response to the vaccine and increase our safety. It is available in the period 2-6 months post the second vaccine.

Sunday, 12 December
at the Caloundra Power Boat Club, 
2 Lamerough Parade, Golden Beach 
11.30 am for 12 noon
