Coronavirus: ATAGI’s Christopher Blyth calls on eligible West Australians to get booster before border opens

Convincing the 20 per cent of West Australians who aren’t fully vaccinated to roll-up their sleeves is the priority, but those eligible for a booster should get it before the border opens.

That’s according to Professor Christopher Blyth, the Perth-based co-chair of the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation, which advises the Federal Government on COVID-19 vaccines.

Over the weekend, the body approved the Moderna vaccine to be used as a booster shot for Australians aged 18 and over. It can be used irrespective of what vaccine a person received for their primary course.

ATAGI also cut the waiting time for boosters from six months after a person received their second dose down to five months.
