Australia surpasses 85 per cent full vaccination rate

Australia has reached its next major vaccination milestone, with the country having had more than 85 per cent of its eligible population over 16 fully vaccinated against the virus.

Overall, a total of 85.1 per cent of eligible adults are fully vaccinated, and 91.5 per cent have had their first dose.

Western Australia remains the country’s least vaccinated state, with 72.7 per cent fully innoculated, although Queensland (73.3 per cent) and the Northern Territory (73.3 per cent) are only just ahead.

The ACT is in the lead with more than 95 per cent fully vaccinated. Close behind is NSW at 91.8 per cent.

The figures are for eligible adults over 16.

GPs, pharmacies and state-run hubs — including drive-through clinics — are all doing vaccinations with AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna.
