Well… we moved on to 4 pretty quick.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has had his COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.
Morrison was reunited with Jane Malysiak, who was the first Aussie to get a COVID-19 vaccine back in February.
Booster shots are on offer from six months after the second dose, with the vulnerable being offered theirs first.
A leading epidemiologist says Australians will need a third and even a fourth dose of a COVID-19 vaccine as the country enters the next phase of the pandemic.
The warning comes despite more than 80 per cent of people aged 16 and over being fully vaccinated with two doses.
Experts have warned being fully vaccinated may not be good enough next year as iterations of the virus inevitably emerge and some freedoms, such as entry into certain countries may require proof of additional doses.
What is a booster shot?
Anyone who has had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine is considered fully vaccinated in Australia.
A booster shot is effectively another dose of a vaccine, but it does not add extra protection, rather it replenishes the immunity profile which will naturally wane over time.
Regardless of which vaccine you’ve received, such as Pfizer or AstraZeneca, having both doses will significantly reduce your chance to contract, spread or fall seriously ill from the virus.
