Decrease in standard interval for AstraZeneca boosters
The standard interval between the completion of a primary course and receiving an AstraZeneca booster dose is now 3 months rather than 4 months. This aligns with the dose internal for the Pfizer vaccine.
Please note, a prescription is still required for anyone to access AstraZeneca as a booster dose.
Booster reminder texts and emails
Over the weekend, the Ministry of Health sent reminder texts and emails from Dr Ashley Bloomfield to people who were overdue for their booster. This may generate additional demand for boosters.
Please send feedback to Leanne.Kirton@waitematadhb.govt.nz.
