  • Daily doses by administration channel

    Below is a plot of 7-day average of daily vaccine doses administered in Australia by administration channel, showing the daily number of doses administered by state vaccination clinics, and by GPs and in federally operated aged and disability care. The 7-day average is further smoothed to remove day-to-day random fluctuations using Gaussian smoothing with σ=1 days.

    Projected doses are based on a fit to the last 4 weeks of first doses assuming exponential approach toward some maximum uptake level, the assumption that second doses will follow first-doses after the current average first-to-second dosing interval, and that third doses will follow after the current average second-to-third dosing interval.

    Data note 1: 80,560 GP-administered doses were reported on April 19th that were administered "prior to April 17". These have been incorporated into the data by spreading them over the period from March 22nd (start of phase 1b) to April 16th in proportion to the daily rate of GP-adminsitered doses on each day.

    Data note 2: A correction to of -9,260 doses to VIC's state-clinic numbers was made on May 25th. These have been incorporated into the data by spreading them over the period from March 22nd (start of phase 1b) to April May 23rd in proportion to the daily rate of VIC state-clinic-adminsitered doses on each day.

    Daily doses by weekday

    Below is a plot of national daily doses by weekday, for the past five weeks. No averaging or smoothing has been done.

    Cumulative doses

    Below is a simple plot of cumulative doses in Australia over time by administration channel, showing the cumulative number of doses administered by state vaccination clinics, and by GPs and in federally operated aged and disability care. Australia aims to vaccinate all eligible people with at least one dose by the end of 2021.

    Following that is a plot of cumulative first, second, and third doses administered, with projections.

    Projected doses are based on a fit to the last 4 weeks of first doses assuming exponential approach toward some maximum uptake level, the assumption that second doses will follow first-doses after the current average first-to-second dosing interval, and that third doses will follow after the current average second-to-third dosing interval.

    Note: The percentage targets in the above plot show the dates when 70% and 80% of the eligible population (ages 12+) received/are projected to have received two doses. However, in the national plan, these targets are framed in terms of the 16+ population. Thus these projected dates assume that vaccination coverage in the 12–15 age group is similar at these points to that of the 16+ age group.

    First and second dose coverage by age group

    Below are plots of the percentage of each 10-year age group that has had a first and second administered, as well as the weekly rate of uptake as a percentage of each age group. Note that first dose data by age group is only available from May 9th, and second dose data from June 30th. The 12–15 and 16–19 age groups are kept separate rather than as a single 12–19 group, due to the 12–15 age group becoming eligible much later, making it more interesting to show as a separate group.

    First, second, and third dose coverage by state/territory

    Below are plots of the percentage of the resident population aged 12+ in each state/territory that has had a first and second dose administered, as well as the weekly rate of uptake, as a percentage of each state/territory's age 12+ population. For a more detailed age breakdown, including 16+ coverage by state, see the next section.

    First and second dose coverage by state/territory and age group

    Below are plots of the percentage of the resident population in each state and territory that has had a first and second dose administered, by age group.

    Included are also projections of when various targets would be met, assuming the current seven-day average rate of first-doses, and the current average dosing interval in each state. These should be taken with a grain of salt, as the rate of first-doses, as well as the dosing intervals, may change.
