The best way to protect our families and communities is to practice COVID Safe behaviours and get vaccinated against COVID-19.
All Aboriginal people 5 years and over can receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Eligible children aged 6 months to 5 years can also be vaccinated.
It is very important for everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated to protect the vulnerable people around them from getting very sick or dying from COVID-19.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccine
Watch in Pitjantjatjara language.
A vaccine is medicine that:
- helps people fight a virus if they come in contact with it
- can stop people from getting very sick from the virus.
A vaccination is when you receive an injection of the vaccine. This is done with a needle.
COVID-19 vaccination is the best way to protect you, your family and community from getting very sick or dying from COVID-19.
The number of COVID-19 vaccine doses you should have depends on your age or medical risk of getting very sick with COVID-19. Find more information about vaccinating:
If you are not sure what vaccine you should get, speak with your doctor or Aboriginal health clinic.
Find out what to expect before, during and after your vaccination appointment.
