The NSW, VIC and SA governments recently decided to reduce the time between our second COVID-19 jab and third booster shots to just three months, but does the shorter timeframe mean your vaccine could be less effective?
And what about choosing between Pfizer or Moderna; how do you know which one you should get? Does it matter? Does it depend on which vaccine you had for round one and two?
The Quicky speaks to our favourite GP to find out the answers to these and many more questions about Australia's booster program, including whether there is any truth to reports that a third injection can miraculously heal a variety of skin conditions overnight.
