Frequently asked questions

What are boosters and why do we need it?

According to the Department of Health, whilst two doses of COVID-19 vaccine provides very good protection against severe disease, a third dose will ensure the protection provided by the previous dose is even stronger and longer lasting.

In doing so, a booster dose increases your protection against: 

  • infection with the virus that causes COVID-19
  • severe disease
  • dying from COVID-19.
