Peninsula close to 75 per cent fully-vaccinated
The NSW Government has released figures showing the Peninsula is close to 75 per cent fully vaccinated, with first vaccinations close to 93 per cent.
Analysis of the October 13 figures showed that only under-50s in the 2256 postcode area were struggling to reach those rates.
That group was close to 70 per cent fully-vaccinated, with first vaccination rates of 86 per cent.
Earlier in the week, the NSW Government Covid Data and Statistics page showed vaccination rates had been revised down by 10 per cent since September 30.
The October 10 figures reduced the total vaccination numbers by 5000 (2000 for 2256 postcode and 3000 for 2257), implying a full vaccination rate on the Peninsula in the low 50s (52 to 54 per cent), 20 per cent below the State average.
These figures were published more widely, including on the social media page of Central Coast Parliamentary Secretary Mr Adam Crouch.
However, with the release of the October 13 figures, the October 10 figures were corrected to figures closer to the State average.
Figures which show no vaccination of Peninsula residents for several days in the previous week were not corrected.
NSW Health told Central Coast Local Health District that there were a number of reasons why anomalies may occur.
These included changes to address data, data quality checks removing duplicate records and delays in uploading data to the Australian Immunisation Register.
