This Helpful Interactive Map Shows Victoria's COVID-19 Vaccination Rates by Postcode
The Victorian Government maps lets Melburnians see the percentage of residents who've had the jab across the city and state.
Throughout the pandemic, the Victorian Government has been providing the state's residents with an online map that tracks COVID-19 cases, including by postcode and Local Government Area. This handy resource has been updated every day throughout the state's response to the coronavirus, helpfully. Also now on offer on the Victorian Government website, and also just as useful: a map that shows vaccination rates in each postcode.
Covering the entire state, the nifty resource outlines jabs by tracking the number of folks who are fully vaxxed in each postcode. So, you just need to zoom in to find out whichever area you're interested in, with the map's colour-coding identifying what percentage of that postcode is double-jabbed. And, you can also click on each postcode area for further details.
In terms of hues, you'll see a dark purple colour for under 40 percent fully vaxxed, a medium purple for 40–50 percent and a lighter purple for 50–60 percent. Then, you'll spy a very light, almost grey-white shade for 60–70 percent, light green for 70–80 percent, a leafy green for 80–90 percent and dark green for over 90 percent.
Need more details? When you click on a particular postcode, it'll break down those numbers further. So, you'll also see the percent for first doses, the eligible population in the area over the age of 12, the total population, and the timeline — at the moment, when that postcode reached 70-percent first doses, if it has.
As announced by Premier Daniel Andrews back in September, the Victorian roadmap out of lockdown relies upon vaccination rates, with rules and restrictions loosening at set vax milestones. The key thresholds: 70-percent and 80-percent double doses.
These points fall in line with Australia's overall 'National Plan to transition Australia's National COVID Response' that was announced in July, too, which steps through how the country aims to move away from lockdowns, loosen restrictions for fully vaxxed folks and handle COVID-19 cases moving forward — including allowing international travel again at the 80-percent double-vaccinated point.
Keen to keep an eye on overall vaccination rates, not just locally but state-by-state and nationally? We've also rounded up how you can do just that.
