Key points from NSW Health for 30 September 2021

Key points from NSW Health for 30 September 2021
  • NSW has now reached 86.7% single dose and 62.79% double dose vaccinations. 47.6% of 12-15 year olds have been vaccinated.
  • Thank you to everyone who has come forward to get vaccinated. We will definitely hit our 70% double dose target and lift some restrictions by Monday 11 October.
  • Anyone 12 and over can now receive a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. This means that those aged 60 years and over can choose between the three approved vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca. Please book your vaccination as soon as possible at nsw.gov.au. Appointments are available across NSW. Please don’t wait.
  • Schools will return one week earlier than anticipated. The staggered approach will remain in place. We will give advice about what to do if there is a case at a school.
  • There were 941 locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8pm last night. Sadly six people have died.
  • We are pleased to see cases declining in West and Southwest Sydney, but now is not the time for complacency. Please continue to monitor for symptoms and present for testing. Please make sure you know the restrictions in your area https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/rules
  • Suburbs of concern are Merrylands, Bankstown, Leumeah, Revesby, Fairfield, Woodberry, Mount Druitt, Liverpool, Unanderra and Yagoona. It is important that everyone presents for testing and takes this opportunity to get vaccinated. It is critical that people aged 16-39 get vaccinated now, because you are the connector across generations.
  • We remain concerned about areas with positive sewage detection. We encourage people in Gunnedah, Tweed, Banora Point, South Grafton, Gulgong, Dareton and Moruya to be vigilant for symptoms and come forward for testing.
  • Our reopening date is getting close and we can look forward to a very bright summer in NSW.
