New data from the federal government shows that just 1.63 million Australians aged 16+ (7.92 per cent) have received both doses of the Pfizer or AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to date. Some 6.11 million (about 30%) have had their first dose since the vaccine rollout began in late February. The figures also show that despite being a priority in the rollout, the proportion of older Australians who are fully vaccinated remains low. This varies from 38.4 per cent of people in the 95+ age group to 5.7 per cent of those aged 65-69. Epidemiologist Hassan Vally says the number of people aged 60+ who are fully vaccinated should rise sharply in coming weeks, due to the 12-week delay in receiving the second AstraZeneca dose.
