Ararat mayor Jo Armstrong has congratulated her community for its vaccination response in the fight against COVID-19.

On Monday, more than 64 percent of the municipality’s residents aged 15 and older had received their first dose of vaccine and 46 percent their second dose.
Cr Armstrong said she was proud of the community for rolling up its sleeves, with vaccination rates in Ararat district higher than the national average.
“It’s a collaborative effort that requires dedication from our doctors and nurses, along with our community to do the right thing, that has given us these results,” she said.
