Do I need two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine? Do they have to be the same type of COVID-19 vaccine to be effective?

Yes, Australia’s COVID-19 vaccines require two doses to provide the best immunity.

It is important you get the same type of COVID-19 vaccine for it to be most effective.

Once I have had a vaccination, do I still need to take other precautions to stop the spread of COVID-19?

After receiving your vaccination, it is still important for you to continue safe practices to stop COVID-19 from spreading.

Stay 1.5 metres away from others, wash your hands regularly with soap and water, stay home when you are sick, get tested for COVID-19 and wear a mask when required.

Do people who have had COVID-19 still need to be vaccinated?

People who have had COVID-19 and have recovered should still be vaccinated. Because the virus that causes COVID-19 is a new virus, experts do not know how long natural immunity might last after the infection. It is very likely that protection from re-infection will reduce over time. Therefore it is sensible to have the vaccine to boost immunity and ensure that the protection lasts longer.

Can COVID-19 vaccines give me COVID-19?

None of the approved COVID-19 vaccines in Australia contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means they cannot give you COVID-19.

Some side effects from COVID-19 vaccines, such as fever, muscle aches and tiredness, can seem like symptoms of COVID-19. These symptoms are part of the normal reaction to vaccination. They are a sign that the vaccine is working and the body is building protection against the COVID-19 virus.

Do the COVID-19 vaccines contain animal products?

The COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Australia do not contain any animal, meat or egg products.

Can I shop at the centre before or after my vaccination?
