Scott Morrison encouraging COVID booster shots as fears rise over winter wave
Prime Minister Scott Morrison is pleading with Australians to get a COVID booster shot as fears grow over another wave of the virus next winter.
Every Australian home will receive a letter from Mr Morrison as the national booster program gets underway today.
More than 151 million extra doses of Pfizer and AstraZeneca have been ordered by the government.
More than 1.5 million people are due for a booster jab by Christmas Day.
Health authorities say the program is critical to preventing hospitalisations and lockdowns.
