Vaccine numbers revised down, no jabs for a week?

NSW Health revised down the numbers of vaccinations that have occurred in the 2256 and 2257 postcode areas last week.

The same figures also suggest no vaccinations were given last week in the 2257 postcode area.

Figures published on the NSW Government Covid data and statistics website on September 30 showed a first-dose rate of more than 90 per cent in the 2257 postcode area.

This was revised back to 80-89 per cent on October 4.

The second dose rate for the 2256 postcode area was shown as 60-69 per cent on September 30, which was revised down to 50-59 per cent on October 4.

The published figures also suggest that no vaccinations were given for 2257 postcode residents in the week from September 30 to October 7, and none in the 2256 postcode between October 4 and October 7.

A reconciliation of vaccinations by age group with the total numbers given shows more vaccinations cannot have been administered during these periods.

The total number of vaccinations reported for 2257 remained between 38,000 and 39,000 between September 30 and October 7.

During the same period, the number of vaccinations to under-50s remained as between 13,000 and 14,000, and between 23,000 and 24,000 for over-50s.

The only way these numbers add up is if the upper figures for age group vaccinations is used to achieve the lower number of the total vaccinations given.

With exactly 14,000 under-50s vaccinations and 24,000 over-50s vaccinations, the total vaccinations given in 2257 would be 38,000.

Being at their limit, no extra vaccinations could have been given without the age group vaccination ranges changing.

Similarly, the figures in the 2256 postcode area were at their limits on both October 4 and 7.

The upper limit of the 6000-7000 under-50s vaccinations and of the 12,000 to 13,000 over-50s to add up to 20,000 - the lower limit of the 20,000 to 21,000 range.

The Government website gives no explanation of how vaccination rates can be revised downwards when the "eligible population" numbers remain the same.

Nor does it explain why no vaccinations were recorded for several days last week.

However, the website does state: "Percentage of the population vaccinated by residential address by postcode is sourced from the NSW Ministry of Health.

"Vaccine data is sourced from the Australian Immunisation Register - Services Australia."
