Bonkers figure for Australia’s most vaxxed place

A crazy number of the eligible adult population in this Aussie jurisdiction is now at least partially vaccinated.

More than 100 per cent of Canberrans aged over 16 are now partially vaccinated against Covid-19.

The ACT is officially Australia’s most vaccinated jurisdiction, with 96.4 per cent of over 12s now fully vaccinated against the virus.

But the 100 per cent milestone has raised some eyebrows.

According to the commonwealth’s latest data, as of Sunday, 344,124 Canberrans over 16 have had their first dose, but the official population the Department of Health uses is only 344,037.

Official population figures are likely out of date, given the data is based on Australian Bureau of Statistics figures from 2019.

The milestone comes after Canberrans were able to rip off their masks and hit the dance floor for the first time in months over the weekend.

Masks are no longer required in many indoor settings, including shopping centres, but remain mandatory on public transport and in schools.

Front-of-house staff in hospitality venues are required to continue to wear masks.

In addition, there is no longer a cap on the number of visitors allowed at a private residence or at an outside social gathering.

Density limits have also been eased, and nightclubs have been allowed to reopen with vertical consumption and dancing back on the cards.

The ACT recorded 10 new cases on Monday, and there is just one person in hospital with Covid-19. They are not in ICU, nor do they require ventilation.

The ACT and Commonwealth Health departments have been contacted for comment.
