ATAGI has provided updated advice regarding COVID-19 booster doses for those aged 12-15 years. 

A single booster dose of Comirnaty (Pfizer) is now recommended for the following select groups:  

  • those who are severely immunocompromised 
  • those who have a disability with significant or complex health needs 
  • those who have complex and/or multiple health conditions that increase the risk of severe COVID-19. 

Booster doses can be administered ≥ 3 months after the completion of the primary course, or ≥ 3 months after COVID-19 infection (whichever is later).  

There is currently insufficient evidence to support expanding this booster dose recommendation to other groups of adolescents aged 12-15 years, however this advice may change in the future as more evidence emerges.
