Thanks for the vaccination calculations
Thanks to editor Mark Snell for his vaccination calculations (PN528), as the government is not providing sufficient detail for us to identify vaccination gaps and target conversations across our community.
This data set indicates that despite the challenges accessing vaccinations the people of the Peninsula have made a huge effort to get vaxxed, with excellent results to date.
According to Mark's data, the 50+ age group are really doing well, with a over 93 per cent first jab vaccine success.
However now is no time to rest and rely on those around us for protection.
It was great to see so many people picnicking across our community over the weekend, and the more people who get vaccinated the more we will regain the freedoms we enjoy.
The arrival of Moderna in pharmacies in the Peninsula this week will provide additional opportunities for those frustrated by long waits and rescheduled appointments to line up for their protection.
As always, I encourage you to take the time to discuss your vaccination options with your doctor and make the decision that is best for you.
