If you have already had your first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, and did not experience abnormal side effects, ATAGI recommends you still receive your second AstraZeneca dose. This will provide you with greater coverage against severe illness from COVID-19.

I want more information on the vaccines
That's great to hear. All vaccines are thoroughly tested for safety before they are approved for use in Australia. This includes careful analysis of clinical trial data, ingredients, chemistry, manufacturing and other factors.
For questions to all your answers, such as 'Were COVID-19 vaccines developed too quickly to be safe?' and 'How long will the COVID-19 vaccine last once I have had two doses?' you can visit the 'Is It True' website.
You can also watch the below myth-busting video from Dr Jeanette Young.
