Frequently asked questions

Why is it important for everyone to get vaccinated?

The COVID-19 vaccine will help protect you and others from getting really sick or dying from COVID-19, and if we can achieve a high vaccination rate within the community it’s likely to reduce number of outbreaks, and the need to utilise border closures and travel restrictions as preventative public health measures.

It’s important to note that the vaccine won’t entirely eliminate the chance of getting COVID-19, but the severity of the infection may be reduced compared with not being vaccinated.
