Ararat vaccinatio­ns among top in state


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

Federal Department of Health data shows Ararat Rural City is one of Victoria’s leading municipali­ties when it comes to COVID-19 vaccinatio­n rates.

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.
