Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) updated their advice regarding what constitutes being ‘up to date’ with regards to COVID-19 vaccines.
Under the new advice, a person is ‘up to date’ if they have completed all the doses recommended for their age and individual health needs.
ATAGI recommends that everyone aged 16 years and older receive a booster dose three months after their primary course, to maintain the best protection and an ‘up to date’ status. Further, ATAGI has advised that if it has been longer than six months since a person’s primary course and they haven’t had a booster, they will no longer be considered ‘up to date’ and instead will be considered ‘overdue’
