After a painfully slow start, Australia has become one of the world’s vaccination leaders.
Currently, 85.6% of Australia’s population aged 12-plus has received two vaccine doses, with NSW (91.5%) and Victoria (89.9%) leading the way:
Victoria is expected to hit 90% vaccination today, with the other jurisdictions expecting to hit that target as follows:
- QLD 17 January 2022;
- WA 20 January 2022;
- SA 3 January 2022;
- TAS 13 December 2021;
- NT 16 January 2022;
Australia is also expected to hit the 90% threshold on 16 December.
As shown in the next chart, 73% of Australia’s total population is now fully vaccinated, which is ahead of nations like France, the UK, Sweden, Germany and Switzerland:
Overall, Australians should be commended for getting vaccinated so quickly.
