When will I need my COVID vaccine booster shot? And can I switch to a different brand?

A man gets his vaccine.

Australia’s vaccine rollout is really starting to gain pace, especially in New South Wales and Victoria. We need to get two doses of vaccine into as many adults as possible — firstly because that helps reduce severity of illness and infection, but also because reaching vaccination targets is likely to bring some new freedoms. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna and Astra Zeneca) continue to be highly effective in reducing risk of severe disease, hospitalisation and death, even against the Delta variant. But as soon as we finish one vaccine rollout we may need to begin the next rollout of booster doses.
