Gladys Berejiklian reveals unvaccinated people WON’T get freedoms when NSW hits its 80 per cent double dose Covid vaccination target
Premier Gladys Berejiklian has warned unvaccinated NSW residents will miss out on new freedoms even after the state hits 80 per cent double dose.
‘At 80 per cent additional freedoms will be for those who are fully vaccinated,’ she said at a Covid briefing on Wednesday.
The premier continued that it would be a ‘period of time’ before those who haven’t got the jab can enjoy the same freedoms and when that will be will be based off health advice.
This means that while some can enjoy a drink at the pub, holidays around the state and attend gatherings, others may have to stay at home for much longer.
‘It will be an absolute fact that once we start opening up we will see a rise in case numbers. At 80 per cent when vaccinated people have more freedoms, it won’t mean unvaccinated people will participate,’ the premier said.
‘There will be another date after that by which the unvaccinated people will be able to participate in events or activities.’
Some major events could however only remain available for the vaccinated only, with Ms Berejiklian adding some airlines may only take travellers who have received both jabs.
More to come.
