Children aged 5 to 11 can receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine from 10 January 2022.

You can also get your child vaccinated at your nearest state vaccination centre. Find out more about vaccines for young children or book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment today.
By vaccinating your children, you can:
- Reduce the spread of COVID-19
- Protect them from getting sick from COVID-19
- Keep schools open, so children can have more face-to-face learning and playtime with their friends.
The recommended interval for vaccination in this age group is two doses, 8 weeks apart.
The interval can be shortened to a minimum of 3 weeks in special circumstances. For example:
- as part of an outbreak response
- before the start of significant immunosuppression, or
- before international travel.
