The latest vaccination figures from the Health Department show over 37.7 million vaccination doses have been administered to 90% of the adult population and over 83% of Australian adults are now fully vaccinated.
Vaccination rates are highest in the ACT (97%+ fully vaccinated), NSW (91%) and Victoria (87%). All three jurisdictions fully re-opened to domestic travellers, and Australian citizens and residents returning from overseas who are fully vaccinated, in early November.
For the three States set to re-open during the next seven weeks vaccination rates are considerably lower. Now 82% of Tasmanians are fully vaccinated, 74% of South Australians and 70% of Queenslanders.
South Australia is due to re-open to travellers from NSW, Victoria and the ACT next week on Tuesday November 23, Tasmania is set to re-open on Wednesday December 15 and Queensland is set to re-open two days later on Friday December 17 – just over a week before Christmas.
Roy Morgan has partnered with leading technology innovator UberMedia to aggregate data from tens of thousands of mobile devices to assess the movements of Australians as we deal with the restrictions imposed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The interactive dashboard available tracks the movement data for those visiting the Capital City CBDs during 2020 and 2021, excluding the CBD residents of each city. Movement data from several key locations around Australia is also available to view by using the interactive dashboard.
Michele Levine, CEO of Roy Morgan, says November has brought increases in movement levels around Australia as restrictions continue to be eased in Sydney and Melbourne and vaccination rates continue to steadily increase in other States:
