From 10 January 2022, Australia’s COVID-19 vaccination program will be extended to all children aged 5 to 11 years. The recommended time interval between doses is 8 weeks. We will start running vaccination clinics for this age group in early February 2022, and will open up on-line bookings in mid January. Please note a legal guardian must be present with the child to provide consent at both vaccinations.
Vaccination experts on ATAGI have recommended the Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine be made available to all children aged 5 to 11 years to help prevent serious illness from COVID-19. The vaccine for this age group is one-third of the dosage given to people aged 12 years and over. Further information is available here.
