vaccination 2722937 640 1

In the most recent data released by the National Department of Health, has provided a glimpse into how the vaccine rollout is going in local government areas across the region, with some councils faring the best in the state and others falling short.

Orroroo/Carrieton and the Flinders Ranges council areas are well above state average in the rollout, while Peterborough and Goyder are trailing on the fully vaccinated average.

The Peterborough District Council area currently has one of the lowest vaccinations in the state, sitting at 44.7 percent for first doses, and 21.4 percent fully vaccinated, making the district’s fully vaccinated percentage the second worst in the state.

Allegedly the Peterborough Hospital was originally administering the vaccination but stopped in August, leaving the local Peterborough Pharmacy to provide the community with AstraZeneca vaccinations.

SA health has now also indicated that Pfizer vaccinations will commence at Peterborough in the next week, with bookings opening soon.
