As residents received the news that a case of the new COVID-19 variant Omicron has been detected locally (awaiting confirmation), the Local Health District has drawn the public’s
attention to the availability of booster shots.
Anyone aged 18 years and over who received their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine six months or more ago can receive a Pfizer booster vaccination at the COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic Wyong Hospital.
The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends a third primary dose of COVID-19 vaccine in severely immunocompromised populations to address the risk of sub optimal or non-response to the standard two dose schedule, with the third dose intended to maximise the level of immune response to as close as possible to the general population.
Anyone over the age of 18, who is considered immunocompromised and who received their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine two months or more ago can receive a third dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
The Wyong Public Hospital COVID vaccination clinic is located in the hospital’s Outpatients Department, accessible via the main entrance.
