ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “When should you book in your COVID-19 booster vaccine? | ABC News” – below is their description.

Pfizer booster shots will be offered to Australians from next month once the government’s vaccine advisory body makes its final recommendations.

Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved boosters for people aged 18 years and older, six months after they’ve had their second dose.

Infectious disease modeller Dr Deborah Cromer says vaccine immunity starts to wane at six months but, she suggests focusing on when the vaccine efficacy reduction drops.
