This is a consumer fact sheet giving information to support those people living with HIV into COVID-19 vaccination.
Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (Comirnaty) is highly effective at preventing severe disease and death from COVID-19. We recommend all people living with HIV (PHIV) be vaccinated and remain up to date with booster and additional doses.
Although protection from infection with Omicron variants is reduced, the vaccine is still effective at reducing severe COVID-19 infection and deaths. Those who were vaccinated when their CD4 count was less than 200 should have a third primary dose at least 8 weeks after their second dose.
