MURRINDINDI has achieved above the state average for vaccinations, but how do we stack up against our neighbouring shires? It seems we could be doing better.

The following data was supplied by the federal Department of Health and published on October 11. The data is as at October 10. It is based on the Medicare address of the vaccination recipients and relates to the 16+ population.

FIRST DOSE

  • Strathbogie 94.1%
  • Mansfield 93.6%
  • Alpine 93.4%
  • Mitchell 91.0%
  • Murrindindi 88.9%
  • Yarra Ranges 87.8%

SECOND DOSE

  • Alpine 70.4%
  • Strathbogie 70.0%
  • Mansfield 66.0%
  • Murrindindi 62.6%
  • Yarra Ranges 58.0%
  • Mitchell 57.2%

Despite being behind many of our neighbours, we are still ahead of the Victorian averages (as at October 11), which are currently 86.22% first dose and 60.37% second dose.

Vaccinations are widely available through GPs and pharmacists. Let’s get Murrindindi to the top of the neighbourhood ladder.
