Protecting yourself before your Vaccination

What should I do whilst I wait for my COVID-19 vaccine?

Whether you are vaccinated or not, there are things you can do to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. You must:

  • stay 1.5 metres away from other people and avoid handshakes and contact with people outside your household
  • stay home if you feel unwell and get tested for COVID-19. 
  • wash your hands regularly with soap and water or use hand sanitiser
  • always cough or sneeze into your arm or a tissue and put the tissue in the bin straight away
  • download the COVIDSafe app to help health officials let you know if you have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19
