COVID-19 vaccination

All Australians are encouraged to have the free COVID-19 vaccine.

NDIS participants aged 5 and over, their carers and support workers are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

You are now also eligible for a COVID-19 booster dose if:

  • you are 18 years and older, and
  • had your second dose of your primary course of COVID-19 vaccination at least 4 months ago.

In some states and territories you can access your COVID-19 booster at 3 months after your second dose of your primary course of COVID-19 vaccination. Visit your state or territory government website for more information. 

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) has recommended a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine for people who are severely immunocompromised.

If you have received three primary doses, it is also recommended to have a booster dose four months after your primary course of the vaccine.

The fastest way to book is using the Department of Health Vaccine Clinic Finder .

If you have any questions about the COVID-19 vaccination or booster dose, you should discuss these with your GP or doctor.

For further health information about COVID-19 in your location, we encourage you to refer to local health orders in your state or territory.

There are many ways that people with disability, their family members and carers, and disability workers can get vaccinated, including through Commonwealth COVID-19 vaccination services. 

Accessible vaccination clinics

Some states and territories provide additional services to make it easier for people with a disability to get vaccinated. Further information is available on the Department of Health website .

Vaccine enablement payments

Some providers can claim a COVID-19 vaccination payment for assisting NDIS participants to access the COVID-19 vaccination and booster dose, including through their local pharmacy, GP, or other location such as a vaccination hub.

Learn more about vaccine enablement payment conditions and eligibility on the for providers - coronavirus (COVID-19) page.

Support

We want to ensure that all eligible NDIS participants aged 5 and over, their carers and support workers are supported to overcome any barriers they may face and to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
