17 Jan Stay COVID well this summer
As we move into 2023 COVID-19 is still affecting our lives in many ways, but it’s important to know that we have the tools to protect ourselves and our loved ones while moving forward to do all the things that are important to us.
As we travel more, including internationally, and gather with our families and friends over this holiday period, there are simple steps that we can do ourselves to help prevent severe illness and reduce the spread of the virus in our community.
This might involve choosing to meet up outdoors if you can, thinking about ventilation, masking up in high-risk settings and staying home if you’re unwell.
It is also important to stay up-to-date with vaccines and the following guide is vaccination doses recommended by age:
- 5 years and older – you can have 2 doses (primary course)
- 16 years and older – you can have 2 doses (primary course) and one booster
- 30 years and older – you can have 2 doses (primary course) and 2 boosters.
To register your interest for a COVID-19 booster, please contact Timboon Clinic on 5558 6088. As our Timboon Clinic is a high-risk setting, assisting the sick and vulnerable in our community, we would like to ask you to please wear a mask. Your understanding is greatly appreciated as we continue to work together for a healthy community.
