Australian states to reopen to the fully vaccinated earlier than expected

After continuous lockdown, Greater Sydney and New South Wales may reopen earlier than the residents expected.

This is because both states are rolling up their sleeves for a COVID-19 jab across the state.

As per the NSW government’s roadmap, those who received full vaccine jabs will emerge from lockdown on the first Monday.

It will happen after the state reaches 70 percent double-vaccination coverage.

The Berejiklian government originally predicted the milestone would be reached towards the end of October, allowing businesses to reopen to the double-dosed on Monday, October 25.

But with high vaccination rates, the predicted reopening date was pushed forward to October 18 and then again to October 11.

Health authorities suspect the vaccination target will be reached near October 7.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian that the state has administered at least one dose of a vaccine to 83 percent of the eligible population and 54.2 percent are fully vaccinated.

It is unlikely the state government’s “vaccine passport” will be ready on the reopening date.
