Get your second dose – square

If you received your first dose of #COVID19 #vaccine, you’re halfway there! Vaccines work best when you have received two doses within the recommended time. Either between 3 to 6 weeks for #Pfizer, and between 4 to 12 weeks for #AstraZeneca.

Without the second dose, your body will not be able to fight COVID-19 as effectively. Chat with your healthcare professional today to make an appointment for your #seconddose.

Protect yourself with open borders – square

#Australia is working hard to keep state borders open, so we can travel to different parts of our beautiful country! Even though there may not be a case in your community, with people coming and going in your area, it is important to do what you can to keep yourself safe.

Continue to wash your hands regularly, stay close to others, stay home if you are unwell, and get tested if you have symptoms of # COVID19. When you have the chance, get your #COVID-19 vaccine.

Flu and COVID-19 vaccines – square

# COVID19 and #flu are not the same. They may have similar symptoms, such as fever, sore throat, or feeling tired, but they are caused by different viruses.

The #COVID-19 vaccine will not protect you from the flu and the flu shot will not protect you from COVID-19.

Make sure you get both vaccines. You will need to wait at least 7 days between COVID-19 and flu shots.

Talk to your healthcare professional to find out when you can get yours.

Will COVID-19 vaccines work against new variants? – square

All viruses change or mutate slightly over time. The more # COVID19 circulates in communities around the world, the more likely it is to mutate. This is why # stopping the spread of the virus is so important.

COVID-19 vaccines available in #Australia will still be effective against newer variants of the virus. If COVID-19 continues to mutate, it may mean that people will need to be vaccinated again in the future.

How do COVID-19 vaccines work? – square

# COVID19 vaccines work by training your body to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. This doesn’t mean you can’t get COVID-19, but it does reduce the degree of illness you could get from the virus.

The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19. COVID-19 vaccines will not change your genes or DNA in any way.
