Children's dose

Vaccines for children.jpg

Children aged between 5 and 11 years are now eligible for vaccination against COVID-19

They will receive a smaller dose of vaccine created specifically for their age group.

By vaccinating your children, you can:
  • Reduce the spread of the COVID-19
  • Protect them from getting sick from COVID-19
  • Keep schools open, so kids can have more face-to-face learning and playtime with their friends.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group recommends the Pfizer vaccine for children in this age group.

It is recommended that children receive two doses, 8 weeks apart.
