Updated ATAGI eligibility for a fourth/winter dose for adults aged over 30 

  • The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has expanded eligibility for a fourth/winter dose of COVID-19 vaccine for adults over 30 years of age. 
    • The updated recommendations are: 
    • Adults aged 50-64 are now recommended to receive a winter dose. 
    • Adults aged 30-49 are eligible for a winter dose. 
    • The interval recommended between a third dose, or a recent SARS-CoV-2 infection and a winter dose is now three months. 
  • ATAGI emphasises that people previously eligible for their winter dose should receive it as soon as possible as they remain at higher risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19. They include: 
    • All adults aged 65 years or older 
    • Residents of aged care or disability care facilities 
    • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years or older 
    • People who are severely immunocompromised (this will be their fifth dose) 
    • People aged 16 years or older with a medical condition that increases the risk of severe COVID-19 illness 
    • People aged 16 years or older with disability, significant or complex health needs, or multiple comorbidities which increase the risk of a poor outcome. 

Effective 11 July 2022
