Vaccines reduce the risk of severe disease.
Vaccines reduce the risk of death and vaccines also reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccinations are free for anyone in Australia.
If you live in disability residential accommodation with someone, or aged care accommodation, an Australian Government vaccination provider will be in touch to make vaccination arrangements.
If you need some support you can take a family member, carer, friend or support worker to your appointment.
You will need two appointments for two doses.
When you are at your first vaccination appointment the person administering the vaccine will tell you what kind of vaccine you are getting and the timing for the second dose.
To make your appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination you can go to www.health.gov.au or talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
