Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has hit out at the federal government's prioritisation of Sydney vaccination.
Mr Andrews said he signed up to a national plan to vaccinate the nation, not to vaccinate Sydney.
It comes as reports emerged that NSW GPs and the primary health network had been allocated 45 per cent of the country's Pfizer vaccines last month.
Just over 60% of Victorians have had their first vaccine dose, while in Ballarat 65.5% have had their first jab.
"Some don't like to see this as a race, but a race it surely is," he said.

"I did not know that Premier Berejiklian is in a sprint while the rest of us are supposed to do some egg and spoon race. No. We want our fair share.
"These allocations which are totally unfair and were under the table need to stop and we need to get a make good. We need to get those doses that we did not get fast tracked to us.
"I am not about getting angry for its own sake. That achieves nothing, but these things need to be called out because that is why we are pushing through 60% and we still have a way to go on 70 and 80.
"This was not announced, this was done without anyone knowing and the Commonwealth has got caught doing it.
"It needs to stop."
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said extra vaccines sent to NSW were largely from an allocation of one million from a deal with Poland.
The prime minister said he had rejected calls for NSW to receive extra doses from other states' allocations earlier in the year.
"I'll tell you who said no to that, it was me. It wasn't the states and territories," he told Sky News.
Mr Morrison argued Tasmania and the ACT achieved high vaccination rates without being allocated extra doses during outbreaks like Victoria and Queensland.
He said he didn't share the Victorian premier's view the rollout was unfair but did not dispute the dose figures.
WA Premier Mark McGowan also called for states that gave up doses for NSW to be repaid.
"We can't have a situation where some states are punished for doing the right thing for New South Wales," he told reporters in Perth.
Mr McGowan and Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said federal criticism of their states' rollout was unfair.
"We understand that when a state is going through a particular troublesome time, that yes more vaccines should be allocated," Ms Palaszczuk said.
"But don't go then and blame Queensland and Western Australia for getting out the vaccine that we have available."
NSW reported another 1220 local infections and eight deaths as authorities brace for a peak in numbers next week.
Victoria recorded 246 cases for a second consecutive day, equalling the highest increase of the outbreak.
There were 19 new cases in Canberra.
Mr Morrison also shrugged off criticism that he exercised appalling judgment when travelling between Canberra and Sydney for Father's Day with both places in lockdown.
The prime minister, who had an essential work exemption, accused former Labor leader Bill Shorten of a cheap shot.
"In politics, people like to take a lot of swings at you and you get pretty used to it, but sometimes those jabs can be low blows."
