Health authorities have urged residents of Parramatta and Liverpool local government areas to make a “special effort” to get vaccinated as NSW pushes towards the 80 per cent double dose target.
It comes as Deputy Chief Health Officer Dr Marianne Gale expressed concerns about the ongoing high case loads of COVID-19 in the areas of western and south-west Sydney.
“I’d also like to particularly encourage people who live in the suburbs around the Parramatta area and the Liverpool area to make a special effort to come forward for vaccination,” she said.
“We really want to see your vaccination rates even higher than what they are so please for residents of the Parramatta and Liverpool areas, please book in for your vaccinations as soon as you can.”
Elsewhere, Albury and Lismore will enter lockdown as of Thursday 6pm after a total of three cases – two in Albury and one in Lismore – were reported in those regional areas.
