NSW vaccination rates ‘very encouraging’

The Australian’s Health Editor Natasha Robinson says New South Wales’ vaccination rates are “very encouraging”.

“I think what we’re seeing in New South Wales is very encouraging; the vaccination rates are climbing all the time," she told Sky News Australia.

“And the closer that we get to 90 per cent – over 90 per cent fully vaccinated – it’s just exponential, the impacts of how this will actually affect our healthcare system and those impacts on the spread of the virus and also the proportion of people who are sick."

She said it is especially encouraging to see high vaccination coverage in older age groups.
