59% fully vaccinated

Progress on vaccinations here is up to 59% fully vaccinated.

Meanwhile, 77% has received at least 1 dose.

102,840 doses of Sinovac have been given as well, which covers 73,793 people.

The breakdown of people by age group is as follows:

Received at least first dose:

  • 70yo and above: 79%
  • 60 to 69yo: 86%
  • 45 to 59yo: 88%
  • 40 to 44yo: 87%
  • 12 to 39yo: 83%


Completed both doses:

  • 70yo and above: 73%
  • 60 to 69yo: 83%
  • 45 to 59yo: 81%
  • 40 to 44yo: 73%
  • 12 to 39yo: 51%


Many of those in the 12-39 age group should be getting their 2nd doses this month.

Keep safe

As we approach the 2-week mark of P2HA, there is every hope that while there are ongoing clusters, that more people will be fully vaccinated as well.

Here’s hoping that we can progress out of P2HA safely and that we won’t require any lockdown again.
