90% vaccination on track as hesitancy plummets

NSW’s roadmap out of lockdowns plans to lift all coronavirus restrictions once the state reaches a 90% full vaccination rate, which is expected by 26 October.

Several ‘COVID-zero’ states have also suggested that they won’t open their borders until 90% full vaccination is reached.

The good news is that vaccine hesitancy among Australians continues to fall, according to the latest Melbourne Institute’s Vaccine Report, which suggests that achieving 90% vaccination is a realistic goal.

As shown in the next chart, vaccine hesitancy nationally has plunged from a peak of 35.5% in May to 13.3% as at 8 October:

More importantly, those “not willing to be vaccinated” has fallen from 19% to just 6.9%.

As expected, the virus-infected states are showing lower levels of hesitancy.

In NSW, only 6.7% of residents are “not willing to be vaccinated”, whereas 5.8% “don’t know”:

In Victoria, only 5.6% of residents are “not willing to be vaccinated”, whereas 4.5% “don’t know”:

In Queensland, 8.5% of residents are “not willing to be vaccinated”, whereas 9.1% “don’t know”:

In WA, 7.2% of residents are “not willing to be vaccinated”, whereas 6.4% “don’t know”:

In SA, 8.5% of residents are “not willing to be vaccinated”, whereas 10.7% “don’t know”:

Across the other jurisdictions, 4.8% of residents are “not willing to be vaccinated”, whereas 5.4% “don’t know”:

According to COVIDLive.com.au, Australia is on track to hit the 90% double vaccination target on 16 November. But even if the rate of vaccination slows down, we should still get there by Christmas, according to COVID-19Data:

After a slow vaccination start, Australia coming home with a wet sail.

  1. I’m thinking about how Christians are reacting to this virus.

    The govt has shut down churches and is openly encouraging many businesses to discriminate against unvaccinated people.

    How would Jesus have treated an unvaccinated person? Would Jesus and his disciples have gone along with the shutting of churches?

      • Probably all the children will hang their masks out on Christmas eve and Santa might put a lump of coal (or puff some graphene) in the mask of any unvaccinated children.

      How would Jesus have treated an unvaccinated person?

      By urging them to get vaccinated and letting them know that God has provided Science that created the vaccine to prevent them from getting sick and dying!

      Would Jesus and his disciples have gone along with the shutting of churches?

      I am pretty sure Jesus didn’t have ‘sacred worship buildings’.

        How do we know that Satan didn’t create the vaccine ?.

        It’s just the type of thing he would do. Classic Satan.

        Having said that, at least the Church of Satan pays taxes.

      Justification for following laws

      See also: Justification for the state and Christianity and politics

      Some read the phrase “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s” as unambiguous at least to the extent that it commands people to respect state authority and to pay the taxes it demands of them. Paul the Apostle also states in Romans 13 that Christians are obliged to obey all earthly authorities, stating that as they were introduced by God, disobedience to them equates to disobedience to God.

      In this interpretation, Jesus asked his interrogators to produce a coin in order to demonstrate to them that by using his coinage they had already admitted the de facto rule of the emperor, and that therefore they should submit to that rule.[14]

          • * note, this is how nature works to evolve more resilient and healthy human beings.

            Hey lets interfere with that, what could go wrong?!

          • Good point.

            Obviously we need to shut down the entire field of medicine so evolution can take its course weeding out the weak and inferior.

            Well, humans would go back to our ‘natural’ life expectancy of less than 40 years of age. And within a generation we would have masses of people dying from small pox, polio, measles, tuberculosis.

        LOL funniest thing I have read all day… “The science” belongs to those with the money to market the science to the populace, I would much rather believe the real work evidence where the vaccines are so good they have to force you to take it for a disease that you have to the tested to know that you have. Where you have to get booster shots after 6 months, where they have to engage big tech and censor any dissenting opinions and threaten doctors with de-registration if they report the side effects.

        You keep drinking the cool-aid served to you by the MSM and stay in the dark about the reality of the situation.
