A 2023 dose of the COVID-19 vaccination is available.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends that adults aged 65 and over, and adults 18 to 64 who have medical conditions that increase their risk of severe COVID-19, have their next dose if their last COVID-19 dose or confirmed infection (whichever is more recent) was 6 months ago or longer, regardless of the number of doses previously received.

ATAGI also advises the following groups should consider having their next dose:

  • adults aged 18 to 64; and 
  • children 5 to 17 years old with medical conditions putting them at risk of severe COVID-19. 

The 2023 dose is not recommended for children under 18 years who do not have any risk factors for severe COVID-19.

The COVID-19 vaccine is an important measure to keep WA safe and healthy. To help protect yourself and your community, it is important to continue to stay up-to-date with your COVID-19 and flu vaccinations.

The Australian Government manages Australia’s vaccination program. The WA Department of Health are responsible for the rollout of the vaccination program in WA. 

The free COVID-19 vaccine is recommended to all eligible Western Australians.
