ACT expected to hit 70% full vaccination in days


It is expected the ACT will reach 70% double-dose vaccination in the coming days.

95% of eligible Canberrans aged 12+ have now received one dose of a COVID vaccine.

Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith says it’s a significant achievement.

“The fact that we’ve got to 95% of people 12 and over with a first dose means they are pretty likely to get their second dose,” said Minister Stephen-Smith.

“It is an outstanding outcome for our community.

“It is really positive that Canberrans are not only protecting their own health, but looking after one another as well.”
