COVID-19 vaccination information for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

Getting vaccinated protects you, your family, elders and community from getting really sick with COVID-19.

COVID-19 can be dangerous, especially for our elders and people with existing medical conditions. Vaccines help reduce the seriousness of the virus and protect against hospitalisation.

Who can get vaccinated

See the latest recommendations on who should get a COVID-19 vaccine.

This includes who should get vaccinated for the first time (called a primary course), and who should have regular doses (also called boosters).

Where to get vaccinated

There are many sites across Australia where the vaccines are available. A lot of them are in rural and remote locations.

You can find them by:

  • yarning to your local healthcare worker
  • using healthdirect’s Service Finder to find your nearest clinic.

Why you should get vaccinated

Vaccines protect you, your family, elders and community from getting really sick with, or even dying from, COVID-19.

Having a COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others in your community.

Encourage your family, your elders and your community to get vaccinated so that they are protected from getting really sick with COVID-19.

If you're anxious about getting vaccinated, have a yarn with your healthcare worker.

For our past, for our future, for all of us, let's get vaccinated against COVID-19.
