Covid outbreak a wake up call after Ballarat vaccination rates drop


Ballarat leaders have urged residents to use the Covid-19 outbreak as a wake up call and get vaccinated. 

It comes after the rate of people receiving a second dose slowed throughout the city in the last week.

Committee for Ballarat CEO Michael Poulton says now is the reminder.

"Now is a reminder that vaccination is critical so get out let’s make sure we fill up every appointment that's available because we need to get our community vaccinated as soon as we possibly can," he said.
