ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr says the territory has achieved a very high vaccination rate, with 93.4 per cent of those eligible 12 and over having received one dose.
It comes as the territory recorded 28 new COVID-19 cases overnight.
“This very high level of first dose vaccination, when those people have the opportunity to have their second dose later this month, will give our community a very strong level of protection,” Mr Barr said at a media conference on Monday.
“Our fully vaccinated coverage is currently 64.6 per cent of the eligible population.
“What we’re seeing is incredibly strong nation-leading levels of vaccination coverage amongst over 40s.
“But it’s younger Canberrans who have just not yet had the opportunity to access vaccination where we still don’t have the required level of second dose protection.
“Our under 40s are less than 60 per cent fully vaccinated. But that number will change as each day goes by.”
