Israel is the world’s gold standard with 57 per cent of its population “fully” vaccinated. The US is close behind with 40 per cent. Others leading the pack include the UK, Singapore and Lithuania, all with more than 20 per cent rates of complete coverage, meaning both jabs where applicable. Australia is at 1.9%.Flights between North America and Europe are due to resume this month.

We need to get 65 per cent of the population vaccinated.Suggestions? http://www.afr.com/news/politics/national/australia-needs-a-world-beating-vaccine-rollout-now-20210528-p57
