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 Monday 24 January 2022.
Of people aged 12 to 15, 82.8 per cent have received a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, and 78.3 per cent have received two doses. Of people aged 5 to 11, 31 per cent have received a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
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.
Sadly, NSW Health is reporting the deaths of 29 people with COVID-19; 17 men and 12 women.
Of the 29 people who died; two people were aged in their 50s, three people were aged in their 60s, two people were in their 70s, 16 people were in their 80s and six people were in their 90s.
