For the first time since the pandemic began, the Federal Government released a region-by-region breakdown of vaccination rates as of August 1, 2021.
The data for the Central Coast reveals the region’s residents over 15 are increasingly coming on board.
– People aged 15 and over with at least one dose of a COVID vaccine: 45.0%
– People aged 15 and over with full vaccination : 19.6%
The data comes from the Australian Immunisation Register AIR and was an extract that formed part of a host of documents released by the Federal government today.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said “These higher than expected vaccination rates are a credit to the GPs, nurses and pharmacists across the Central Coast.
“We have the staff and the space at Gosford Hospital ready and waiting to run a mass vaccination centre and provide even more people with protection against COVID-19, but we simply don’t have enough doses from the Federal Government.”
