New South Wales’ COVID-19 vaccination rate is accelerating towards the crucial 80 per cent mark that will see the barrier between Greater Sydney the regions removed.

An early leak of today’s numbers, revealed by 9News reporter Chris O’Keefe, showed NSW had reached 76.55 per cent full vaccinations – up 1.32 per cent in 24 hours. It was later confirmed in the official release of the figures.

That outstrips yesterday’s announced increase of 1.2 per cent.

A total of 91.1 per cent of people over 16 have had their first dose.
