Fit and healthy people still need the COVID-19 vaccine – square
#COVID19 is a highly infectious disease. Being young, fit and healthy doesn’t mean you won’t get sick or experience long-term health effects from the virus.
By July 2022, over half of the 240,000 COVID-19 cases among First Nations people have been people aged under 30 years. That is more than 135,000 young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Getting your COVID-19 #vaccine is a great way to help your community and keep you well. To make an appointment to get your next vaccine dose today at covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/booking/

Protect yourself from long COVID – square
Recovering from #COVID19 is different for everybody. It can depend on how sick you were, and if you have other existing health conditions.
Sometimes COVID-19 causes a person to feel unwell for many weeks or months after they first become sick. This is called ‘long COVID’.
There is evidence that COVID-19 #vaccines will help reduce the chance of you experiencing long COVID. Keeping up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines will help protect you from #longCOVID.

COVID-19 vaccines protect you from getting really sick – square
#COVID19 vaccines work by training your body to recognise and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. It doesn’t mean you can’t get COVID-19, but it reduces how sick you can get.
The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines will not change your genes or your DNA in any way.
