North Coast population close to 95% fully vaccinated

North Coast residents have hit the fully vaccinated rate of 92.6% %
The national average is 88.1% fully vaccinated, with the average rate in New South Wales at 92.8%
Healthy North Coast’s Julie Sturgess said the timing couldn’t be better as we head into the holiday season.
‘With school holidays upon us and visitor numbers increasing week by week, the North Coast community has continued to follow through on the incredible first dose rates we saw last month. 92.6% of residents aged 16 and over have now received their second dose,’ Ms Sturgess said.
Ms Sturgess also said this was the last week that Healthy North Coast would be releasing vaccination numbers.
‘After reaching the 95% threshold, detailed vaccination statistics are not available for the final 5%, so we will wrap up our reporting on these rates this week,’ Ms Sturgess said.
