NSW Health encourages everyone who is eligible to book into a NSW Health vaccination clinic or another provider without delay through the COVID-19 vaccine clinic finder

Booster doses of COVID-19 vaccine are now available for people aged 18 and over. People aged 18 years and over are eligible for a booster if they had their second dose at least 4 months ago. We urge people to get their booster dose as soon as they are eligible, to best protect themselves, their loved ones and the community from the ongoing transmission of COVID-19. We also strongly recommend that people aged 12 years and over who are severely immunocompromised have a third primary dose of vaccine from two months after their second dose. 

Sadly, NSW Health is reporting the deaths of eight people with COVID-19, six men and two women. 

One person was in their 90s, two people were in their 80s, two people were in their 70s, two people were in their 60s, and one person was in their 50s.

Five people had received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, two people were not vaccinated, and one person had received three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. 

A man in his 90s died at Coffs Harbour Base Hospital. He was a resident of the Coffs Harbour Grange Aged Care Facility. He had received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. 

A woman in her 80s died at Gosford Hospital where she acquired her infection. She had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

A man in his 70s died at the Bupa Aged Care Facility in Ballina. He was not vaccinated.

NSW Health expresses its sincere condolences to their loved ones.

There are currently 1,491 COVID-19 cases admitted to hospital, with 119 people in intensive care, 32 of whom require ventilation.
