Updated COVID-19 vaccine advice for 2024

Latest advice for AMA members on the Covid-19 Vaccine Program.

The Australian Government has accepted the latest advice from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) on the National COVID-19 Vaccine Program for 2024.

Adults 65 years and over, or aged 18–64 who are severely immunocompromised, are eligible to receive a booster dose every 6 months. All other adults are eligible to get a booster dose every 12 months.

Children aged 5 to 17 who are severely immunocompromised can receive a single dose this year.

Teenagers and children who are in good health do not need a booster dose in 2024, due to the low incidence of severe illness and high level of hybrid immunity amongst this group.
