The surprising Sydney suburbs sitting at 40 PER CENT vaccination rates – as residents in lazy neighbourhoods are warned they will be at greater risk when NSW opens up

  • Western and inner Sydney suburbs trailing behind in vaccination rates
  • Silverwater has less than 50 per cent on first dose and less than 30 on second 
  • Chippendale has less than 60 per cent on one dose and less than 40 on two 
  • Eastern and northern suburbs cruise ahead with up to 90 per cent jabbed 










Western and inner Sydney suburbs are trailing behind in vaccination rates with less than half of their residents double-jabbed in some cases.

Silverwater has the slowest uptake of vaccinations with less than 50 per cent of residents receiving one jab and less than 30 per cent of residents with two jabs.

Chippendale follows close behind with less than 60 per cent of adults on their first dose and less than 40 per cent on their second.

The low figures are overshadowed by the eastern suburbs where single dose rates are just below 90 per cent and double dose is almost 70 per cent.

Coogee, Maroubra and Randwick are among the suburbs with higher intake.

The vaccination uptake increases drastically in the northern suburbs with more than 90 per cent of residents on their first dose and less than 80 per cent on their second.

Vaucluse, Mosman and Rose Bay are among the suburbs that sit ahead of the pack. 

University of Sydney Professor Julie Leask said suburbs with lower vaccination rates would be more vulnerable when the state began to reopen.

‘If the 30 per cent of people in NSW who aren’t fully vaccinated were evenly spread across NSW then each of those people would be more cocooned by the immunity of those around them,’ she said. 

‘Unfortunately, there are clusters in particular communities which makes them more vulnerable.’ 

NSW currently sits at 90.14 per cent first dose after the state smashed the 90 per cent milestone on Saturday. 

How Melbourne suburbs are doing

Slow vaccination rates have been recorded elsewhere in the country and include parts of Victoria.  

Melbourne’s south-east and northern suburbs are among the slowest areas of vaccine uptake with less than 40 per cent of residents double-jabbed.

Dandenong South, Bangholme, Dandenong, Dandenong North and Clayton are the south-east suburbs with low vaccination rates. 

Broadmeadows, Dallas, Jacana, Oaklands Junction, Yuroke and Bulla are the some of the northern suburbs with poor uptake.

Vaccine uptake increases dramatically in the inner and north-east suburbs with nearly 70 per cent of residents fully vaccinated.

Port Melbourne, Kew, Balwyne, Deepdene, Viewbank, Rosanna, Heidelberg and Eaglemont are among the suburbs with higher intake.

Regional Victoria has some of the highest rates of vaccination. Trentham and Charlton have more than 70 per cent of residents double-jabbed.

Kullawil, in north-west Victoria, has more than 80 per cent. 

Covid-19 commander Jeroen Weimar has provided the latest vaccination tracking to the state government with the figures revealing the state will hit its 70 and 80 per cent vaccination milestones early.  

Victoria was expected to hit the 70 per cent double jab rate by October 26. It is now expected to meet the milestone on October 23. 

The 80 per cent milestone was forecast to be met on November 5. The date has been cut by two days to November 3.
