Sydney - M E Times Int'l: To Sunday 9 January across NSW, 95.1 per cent of people aged 16 and over have received a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 93.7 per cent have received two doses.
Of the people aged 12 to 15, 81.5 per cent have received a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, and 78.1 per cent have received two doses.
NSW Health encourages everyone who is eligible to book into a NSW Health vaccination clinic or another provider without delay through the COVID-19 vaccine clinic finder.
Booster doses of COVID-19 vaccine are now available for people aged 18 and over. People aged 18 years and over are eligible for a booster if they had their second dose at least four months ago. We urge people to get their booster dose as soon as they are eligible, to best protect themselves, their loved ones and the community from the ongoing transmission of COVID-19. We also strongly recommend that people aged 12 years and over who are severely immunocompromised have a third primary dose of vaccine from two months after their second dose.
NSW Health vaccination clinics across the state are now administering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to children aged five to 11 years old. NSW Health is encouraging parents and caregivers to make a booking for vaccination at any NSW Health vaccination clinic, at a general practitioner, or a community pharmacy.
Sadly NSW Health is today reporting the deaths of 11 people with COVID-19; six women and five men.
Seven people were aged in their 80s, three people were aged in their 90s, and one person was aged in their 70s.
NSW Health expresses its sincere condolences to their loved ones.
There are currently 2,186 COVID-19 cases admitted to hospital, with 170 people in intensive care, 51 of whom require ventilation.
NSW recorded 25,870 new cases of COVID-19 detected by PCR testing in the 24 hours to 8pm last night.
If you are directed to get tested for COVID 19 or self-isolate at any time, you must follow the self-isolation rules.
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms it is still important that you have a test and self-isolate until you receive a negative test result.
There are COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week. To find your nearest clinic visit COVID-19 clinics or contact your GP.
