Health Minister Greg Hunt says more than 30 million vaccine doses have beenadministered in Australia.
“At about 10 am today, Australia will have passed the 30 million vaccination mark.”
He says 81.5 per cent of adults have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine; 60.2 per cent have been fully vaccinated.
Hunt says Australia now has greater first dose coverage than the United States, Israel and the European Union.
He says it is a difficult day for Victoria but there are reasons for hope, thanks to the nation’s vaccine rollout.
“In particular, we have just had the highest three-day period in the entire rollout.”
