COVID Information for CALD Community

Vaccinations and booster shots
If you are 18 years and older and it has been more than three months since your second COVID-19 vaccination, now is the time to get your booster shot.

With COVID-19 circulating widely in the community, it’s more important than ever to ensure you maintain the high levels of protection against serious illness. Widespread vaccination can also help break the chain of transmission and protect those who are at higher risk during this challenging time.

Bookings can be made at NSW Health vaccination clinics, GPs, pharmacies and Aboriginal Medical Services (AMSs).

Rapid antigen tests (RAT)

Anyone who receives a positive rapid antigen test is now required to register with Service NSW.

Registering via the Service NSW website or app is mandatory and most importantly will ensure you are linked to health care support and advice based on your COVID-19 risk of developing severe illness. 

If you or someone in your family can’t register online, please call Service NSW on 13 77 88. If you require a free telephone interpreter, call 131 450, say the language you need in English and ask the interpreter to connect you to Service NSW.

More information on using a rapid antigen test and what to do if you test positive can be found in 15 languages here.
