Timing your doses

How many vaccines do I need to have?

COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Australia require two doses. 

The Pfizer vaccine second dose is required to be given 3 weeks after the first dose.

The AstraZeneca vaccine is required to be given 4-12 weeks after the first dose, however 6 weeks is the preferred timeframe.

The Moderna vaccine is required to be given 4 weeks after the first dose.


Can I have my flu vaccination when I have my COVID vaccination?

No, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends a minimum of 7 days between either dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and the flu vaccine or any other vaccine. 


Can I have one dose of one vaccine and another dose of another vaccine?

No, you will be vaccinated with the same vaccine for both of your doses.
