UPDATE – Wednesday Feb 08, 2023:
Federal Health Minister, Mark Butler announced that a FIFTH Covid vaccination will be available from February 20 for all Australians aged over 30 who have not had Covid or a Covid vaccination in the past six months.
Australians aged 18-29 will be able to access their FOURTH Covid vaccination.
Mr Butler said people above 65 years remained at high risk of severe illness and death from the coronavirus and so urged them to take their fifth shot if they are eligible.
The rollout of the fifth shot will help “deal with what inevitably will be the next phase of the next wave of COVID sometime over the course of 2023,” Mr Butler said.
At its September 30 meeting, National Cabinet unanimously agreed to end mandatory isolation for most people who test positive to Covid19, effective as of October 14, 2022.
This means that the pandemic emergency response also officially ends as of October 14.
