We received this in an email the other day from https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/ and it outlines the freedoms an unvaxxed person has and the freedoms a vaxxed person has! This is what it is like in a democracy!?
‘When NSW reaches the 70% full vaccination target, the rules about what you can and can’t do will change.
While this means some easing of restrictions for people who are fully vaccinated or have a medical exemption, stay at home rules will either continue or reapply for people who are unvaccinated in rural and regional NSW.
Why the rules are changing
As NSW starts to reopen, to keep us all safe you’ll need to be vaccinated.
COVID-19 vaccines reduce your chance of being infected with COVID-19 by around 80% and significantly reduces the overall spread of COVID-19 to others.
To reopen NSW safely, a large proportion of the population needs to be vaccinated. This will help stop the spread and also protect vulnerable members of our community who are unable to be vaccinated.
For this reason, at the 70% full vaccination target, easing of restrictions will only apply to people who have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine or have a medical exemption.
Increased vaccine supply
Three COVID-19 vaccines are now available in regional and rural NSW. Moderna (Spikevax), Pfizer (Comirnaty) and AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) have all been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia:
- The Moderna vaccine is available for people aged 12-59 and is available in pharmacies.
- The Pfizer vaccine is available for people aged 12-59 and is available in pharmacies, GPs, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services and NSW Health vaccination clinics.
- The AstraZeneca vaccine is available for people aged 18+ and is available in pharmacies, GPs, Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services and NSW Health vaccination clinics.
If you have any questions about which COVID-19 vaccine you should receive, speak to your GP.
