NSW will reach a 70% vaccination rate by the end of October, Premier Gladys Berejiklian says.
According to the Doherty Report which governs timelines from national cabinet, once 70 per cent of a state’s population is fully vaccinated, restrictions can begin to ease.
At 80 per cent, communities start to live with Covid-19 in a “real and meaningful way”, Ms Berejiklian says.
“On current projections, conservatively, New South Wales will get to 70 per cent double doses by the end of October and by mid November, we hope to get 80 per cent double doses,” she said.
Ms Berejiklian said the state would reach 4.8 million doses by the end of the day, and are on track to hit the 6 million dose target by the end of the month.
