Transcript of Will the vaccines protect me against new strains of COVID-19?
Well, the COVID-19 vaccines that we're using at the moment in the Australian program are really effective both against the strain that was circulating last year, in 2020, and the Delta strain, which is the main variant that is circulating this year, in 2021.
But obviously, it's really important that as new variants are circulating both here in Australia and overseas, that we continue to monitor the effectiveness of the vaccines.
But still remember that the COVID-19 vaccine that you have now is still the best protection that you have against getting COVID disease.
