Do I need a 2nd Vaccine?
To get the full benefit of the vaccine you will need two injections:
Pfizer Two doses at least 21 days apart.
Astra Zeneca Two doses 12 weeks apart.

What are Side Effects? 

All medicines and vaccines can cause side effects. If you do experience any side effects, most of them are minor and temporary. However, some side effects may need medical attention. Read about potential COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Extremely rare adverse effects of the vaccine in some people (1 in 250,000). These people developed thrombosis  (blood clots) with thrombocytopenia (low blood platelet count) after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

Before a COVID-19 vaccine is used in Australia, it must be approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). The TGA assesses the safety, quality and effectiveness of the vaccines before they are registered for use in Australia.
