Deloitte Access Economics’ Chris Richardson says in the last five or so weeks in Australia there have been “absolutely magnificent” vaccination rates.
Mr Richardson said that although living “Covid free” might be wonderful, it is also “fragile”.
“And there’s always that risk that Delta can kick down the door, it’s so infectious,” he told Sky News Australia.
“The advantage of the recovery that’s beginning is it should be more robust, and how robust it will be is utterly down to vaccination rates.
“Every economic forecast we’re doing right now is basically a vaccination forecast.”
