The Health Department confirmed today that they had hoped to see a spike in the number of people registering for the COVID-19 vaccine, seeing that more people are able to take part.
According to EWN, there are plans underway to allow people aged 40 – 49 to be able to register soon. By midnight, 354 000 people aged between 50 – 59 had registered on the governments’ electronic vaccination data system and some have requested to go to vaccine sites to get their injections.
This age group will only be receiving their vaccination from July 15. The department also seeks bulk vaccination campaigns where they are able to target larger groups of people, with an aim of making the process easier and eliminating any transport issues.
