ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr says 98.8 per cent of the eligible 12 and over population has received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

It comes as the territory recorded 46 cases overnight and is scheduled to come out of lockdown at 11:59pm tonight.

Mr Barr said 74.7 per cent of the eligible population are fully vaccinated.

“Now, these are not just nation-leading vaccination rates. We believe they are world-leading,” Mr Barr told a media conference on Thursday.

“A highly vaccinated Canberra will be a safer Canberra.”
