The preferred Pfizer Bivalent BA.4-5 COVID-19 is now available at the UNSW Health Service.

With the increase in student and staff numbers on campuses, we want to remind you that COVID-19 is still circulating in the community and that vaccine boosters are now available. Staying up to date with vaccinations can help protect you from severe illness.

If your last COVID-19 vaccination or confirmed infection (whichever is the most recent) was six months ago or more, we encourage you to consider having an additional COVID-19 vaccine booster. It doesn’t matter how many you have previously received.

It is recommended you have a booster in 2023 if:

  • you are 65 years or older
  • you are aged 18–64 and are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, or have a disability with significant or complex health needs.

If you are aged 18–64 and are not at higher risk of severe illness, we recommend you also consider getting a 2023 booster dose.

You’ll find more information about COVID-19 vaccine boosters at NSW Health.
