When might we reach the 70% and 80% vaccination targets if the current rollout rate continues?
Based on the current seven day average of second doses for each state or territory. Dates where jurisdictions have achieved a target are based on the actual vaccination data date, not the date of reporting
Here are the current vaccination rates for each state and territory, as well as the estimated dates for the 70% and 80% targets, using the same method as above:
The next chart shows the speed of vaccinations in the past 30 days for each state and territory, versus the national rate.
It is showing the number of new vaccination doses administered per day, adjusted for population differences to be a rate per 1,000 people. Then, it has been smoothed using a rolling 7-day average due to differences in reporting on weekends and data catch-ups in the national reporting.
Vaccine rollout: maps of vaccination rate by area
The federal government releases weekly data for vaccination rates by statistical area 4 (SA4) regions. By comparing the rates from the first report on 1 August with subsequent reports we can see the areas with the biggest weekly percentage increases in vaccination, and biggest increases since the data was released.
You can use the dropdown menu to switch between showing the vaccination rate for each area, and the percentage change in vaccination rate for each area:
Here, you can see the same information in a table, which can be sorted by region name, state or the change in vaccination percentage:
Vaccine rollout: Indigenous vaccination statistics
Guardian Australia has been tracking the vaccination statistics for Indigenous Australians since August 2021. While Indigenous Covid vaccination rates have risen rapidly, there remains a large gap between First Nations people and overall vaccination rates in almost every state and territory.
These charts have switched to using Indigenous population data sourced from the Australian Immunisation Register instead of ABS population estimates. This means the percentages for some states have changed significantly, such as in Victoria.
Here, you can see national figures for the Indigenous vaccination rate over time compared with the overall vaccination rate, and the difference between the two:
This chart shows the latest rollout gap for each state and territory, with data updated weekly:
Vaccine rollout: vaccine production and distribution
Some of the reason for the differing vaccination rates is due to access and use. The following two charts show the vaccine distribution and estimated usage by states, territories, and primary care (run by the commonwealth). This data is updated weekly.
Vaccine dose usage is estimated by the commonwealth government, based on the total doses administered and allows for a small amount of wastage.
Vaccine rollout: international comparison
In the following two charts you can see how Australia’s vaccine rollout compares with other countries, in terms of doses administered per 100 people.
This first chart adjusts for the fact that countries started administering vaccines on different dates. It shows how Australia compares to select countries at equivalent points in their vaccine rollouts.
Here you can see how those same countries are doing across their entire vaccine rollout, on a doses administered per 100 people basis. Some are already more than halfway to vaccinating their populations.
Not all countries publish data on fully vaccinated people – those who have received two doses. Here you can see how Australia compares to OECD countries on the percentage of the population that are fully vaccinated.
Where can I get vaccinated?
The majority of Australians aged 18 and over are now eligible for a Covid vaccination if they are willing to consider the AstraZeneca vaccine, and provided they do not have a history of some specific health conditions.
In addition to the government’s official eligibility checker, which lists some clinics near your location which might have vaccination appointments available, there are a number of other helpful resources that can help you to find somewhere that has appointments open. You can find our page listing these resources here.
Latest Australia Covid numbers and statistics
This chart shows the “epidemic curve” for Australia, using a seven-day rolling average of daily cases. This will show any progress in “flattening the curve” and how effective various measures have been in suppressing the outbreak:
Here, you can see the number of new deaths reported per day by the states and territories:
This chart shows the cumulative total of confirmed cases, with the contribution of each state and territory:
Updates 15 October 2021
- Updated main rollout target chart to use the first dose + lag time projection method
- Fixed an issue with scrolling in the Guardian app
- Removed the doses per 100 people by jurisdiction line chart as it’s less useful with so many doses being administered via GP and other clinics
Updates 17 September 2021
- Updates to how Indigenous vaccination statistics are presented, now using the 12+ population for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous
- We have changed the way we’re projecting second-dose targets, as outlined in the text above. We have temporarily removed the chart with state-by-state target progress and will replace it shortly with a new chart that uses the new method
Updates 11 September 2021
- Production and distribution section is back
- Removed hospitalisation percentage chart, this will be replaced shortly with a new chart that doesn’t use active cases
- Fixed the cases trend line to stop using the latest day which usually has incomplete data
Updates 6 September 2021
- Removed production and distribution section
- Added vaccination maps and tables for each area
- Re-added the table of rollout projections
Updates 29 August 2021
- Added Indigenous vaccination statistics
- Added ‘Where can I get vaccinated’ section, replacing ‘When can I get vaccinated’
Updates, 9 August 2021
- Retired the “gap tracking” version of the rollout chart, and replaced it with a new chart that tracks progress towards the government’s latest goals of 70% and 80% of the 16+ population
- Changed the summary box to remove the percentage of the population who have only received a single dose, and added the percentage of the 16+ population who are fully vaccinated to allow both international comparisons and progress towards the government’s targets to be clearer
- Removed the government’s projections of future vaccine availability as they’re not realistic
- Added a new chart showing the speed of vaccination by state and territories
