The site for targeted vaccination drives in recent weeks, the Sebastopol and Delacombe postcode of 3356 is beginning to catch up, with 60 to 65 per cent of its 15,513 eligible residents now fully vaccinated, and 80 to 85 per cent having received one jab.
The 3363 postcode, which covers Creswick and Tourello, is at 80 to 85 per cent fully-vaccinated, while the broader 3352 postcode, which takes in much of the rest of the district from Mount Egerton to Lexton, is at 70 to 75 per cent fully vaccinated.
