We only stock the following COVID-19 booster vaccine:

  • Moderna Monovalent Omicron XBB.1.5 vaccine – for those ≥12 years old

Please note:

The monovalent Omicron XBB.1.5 vaccine is now the recommended booster COVID-19 vaccine in Australia.  ATAGI advises the following:

  • All currently available COVID-19 vaccines are anticipated to provide benefit to eligible people
  • The monovalent Omicron XBB.1.5 vaccines are preferred over other vaccines for use in children aged 5 years or older and adults who are currently recommended primary or additional doses of COVID-19 vaccine according to the Australian Immunisation Handbook.
  • For those who have had the recommended 2023 dose/s of COVID-19 vaccine, ATAGI is not recommending further doses or re-vaccination with an XBB.1.5-containing vaccine at this time.

ATAGI notes the recent increase in COVID-19 cases across Australia since November 2023.  ATAGI encourages all people who have not yet had their recommended 2023 dose/s to receive them as soon as possible.
