If you are aged 18 and over and you had your second dose 3 or more months ago, you are due for your third dose now. A COVID-19 third dose helps prevent waning immunity (loss of protection) against COVID-19. Third doses are important to give you and your family maximum protection against COVID-19 and to help reduce the spread of the virus.
