Home-care guidelines for patients with COVID-19
The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) state that “Up-to-date vaccination status is defined by the number and timing of appropriate COVID-19 vaccine doses recommended for and received by an individual, according to their age and other factors."2 This covers primary course vaccination and subsequent booster dose/s.
All vaccines currently available for use in Australia require a minimum of two doses.
Optimal protection is 7–14 days after the final dose in the course.3
While people vaccinated against COVID-19 can still contract the SARS-CoV-2 virus, they are significantly less likely to suffer severe disease or require hospitalisation.
While vaccination significantly reduces the risk of severe disease and hospitalisation, care must be provided based on clinical presentation and medical and social risk factors.
GP teams should ensure they have up-to-date knowledge of the latest clinical guidance for COVID-19 vaccine providers, as this is updated frequently.
