WA Country Health Service administers 100,000th COVID-19 Vaccine

WACHS Aboriginal Health Promotion teams are also achieving high vaccination rates in some remote communities by working with community leaders and Aboriginal elders to talk with residents about the importance of being vaccinated, and to bust myths about the vaccine.This includes the remote community of Warmun – 160 kilometres from Halls Creek – where more than 86 per cent of eligible residents have been vaccinated. Sixty-five per cent of eligible community members in Kalumburu, north of Wyndham, have received their first vaccine.
