Where can I book my fourth-dose COVID-19 vaccine? Here’s what you need to know about getting your winter booster

As of next Monday, Australians aged 30 and older will be eligible for a fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Yesterday, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ATAGI) specifically recommended the shot for people over 50and said people aged 30 to 49 could choose to have a fourth dose.

So how and where can you book your fourth vaccine? Here’s what you need to know about rolling up your sleeve again.

Where can I get my fourth dose?

You can get it at:

  • A participating GP
  • A participating pharmacy
  • The Access and Sensory vaccination clinic – for people who may require additional support to get their vaccinations

Health Minister Mark Butler said there were almost 10,000 points of primary care, pharmacies, and GP surgeries where Australians could go to get their fourth dose.

“We have lots of capacity in the system,” he said.

“They’re running at a much lower level of activity than they were at the peak of vaccinations last year, about 80 percent lower, so there’s lots of capacity in the system.

Butler also said there were “more than enough” vaccines to accommodate the public’s needs.

“There are lots of vaccines in the system to accommodate people catching up with those booster doses I’ve said they’re overdue for, as well as their third dose or even their fourth dose if they’re over 65s.”
