Everyone aged 5 years and over is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine now.

The Covid-19 vaccine has been approved by the state government, department of health, and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and can now be administered to people 5 years and above.

Are the Covid-19 Vaccines Safe?

According to reports from various health departments, the vaccines are generally safe. However, if you have a history of severe allergic reactions, we recommend consulting your doctor before getting the vaccination.

Even after approving the vaccine, the TGA still monitors the vaccination program in Australia and the rest of the world. It is part of an international network of regulators that have regular meetings to chart a way forward regarding the Covid-19 vaccines.

What To Expect During Your Covid-19 Vaccination

Though it is best to go over all your questions and concerns with your doctor before making an appointment with them, they will still be ready to discuss any additional concerns you might have at your appointment with them.

The Covid-19 vaccines are administered as injections, often on your upper arm muscle. You will be required to remain in the clinic for at least 15 minutes after your vaccination for observation. Sometimes, your doctor may require that you might have to wait for up to 30 minutes, depending on your medical history.

Full Covid-19 protection will not happen until approximately one week after the second dose, so remember to continue taking protective measures as mandated by the Australian government.
