Australia crosses 70pc vaccination threshold

Seventy per cent of Australians are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, Health Minister Greg Hunt has revealed.

Hunt said 85.5 per cent of people have received at least one jab of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 70 per cent of people are fully vaccinated.

“There are many people still to come forward for first doses and there are many people still to come back for their second doses and that second dose program is providing real and significant protection,” said Hunt.

277,000 Australians came forward for a vaccination yesterday, meaning more than 33 million vaccinations have been delivered in total.
