Sydney - M E Times Int'l: Across NSW, more than 95 per cent of people aged 16 and over have received a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 93.9 per cent have received two doses to Sunday 23 January 2022.

NSW Health encourages everyone who is eligible to receive a vaccination or their booster dose to book into a NSW Health vaccination clinic or another provider without delay through the COVID-19 vaccine clinic finder.

Of the 29 people who died; five people were aged in their 60s, three people were in their 70s, fourteen people were in their 80s, six people were in their 90s and one was more than 100 years old.
