ATAGI has recommended the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 6 months to under 5 years who are severely immunocompromised, or have disability, as well as those who have complex and/or multiple health conditions that increase their risk of severe COVID-19.

These include children with the following or similar conditions:

  • Severe primary or secondary immunodeficiency, including those undergoing treatment for cancer, or on immunosuppressive treatments as listed in the ATAGI advice on 3rd primary doses of COVID-19 vaccine in individuals who are severely immunocompromised;

  • Bone marrow or stem cell transplant, or chimeric antigen T-cell (CAR-T) therapy;

  • Complex congenital cardiac disease;

  • Structural airway anomalies or chronic lung disease;

  • Type 1 diabetes mellitus;

  • Chronic neurological or neuromuscular conditions; or

  • A disability that requires frequent assistance with activities of daily living, such as severe cerebral palsy or Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21).

updated 07/07/2022

ATAGI has updated its recommendations for a winter dose of COVID-19 vaccine to help reduce severe disease from the emerging surge of Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 subvariant infections, and to reduce the burden on Australian hospitals and the healthcare system in coming months.

The updated recommendations are:

  • Adults aged 50 to 64 years are now recommended to receive a winter booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Adults aged 30 to 49 years can receive a winter booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, however the benefit for people in this age group is less certain.

  • The interval recommended between a recent SARS-CoV-2 infection or the first booster dose and a winter booster dose is now 3 months.

**updated 25/05/2022

Additional groups recommended (from 25 May 2022) for winter booster (4th dose)

• People aged 16-64 years who have complex, chronic or severe conditions that are considered to increase their risk of severe illness from COVID-19

**updated 25/03/2022

ATAGI recommends an additional booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine to increase vaccine protection for winter. This winter booster dose should be available from April 2022 for specified populations who are at increased risk of severe disease. These groups are:

  • Adults aged 65 years and older

  • Residents of aged care or disability care facilities (including those under 65 years)

  • People aged 16 years and older with severe immunocompromise as defined in the ATAGI statement on use of a 3rd primary dose of COVID-19 vaccine in individuals who are severely immunocompromised)

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults aged 50 years and older.

The additional winter booster dose can be given from 3 months or longer after the person has received their first booster dose, or from 3 months after a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, if infection occurred since the person’s first COVID-19 booster dose.
