COVID-19 milestone: Canberra reaches 50% of first dose vaccinations | ABC News

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “COVID-19 milestone: Canberra reaches 50% of first dose vaccinations | ABC News” – below is their description.

It’s been a milestone day for the ACT’s vaccination rollout, as more than 50% of the adult population is now vaccinated with at least one dose.

It was also a busy day for thousands of 30 to 39-year-olds who broke the record for the most bookings in a single day in Canberra, despite an all-too-familiar system crash.

The day didn’t only bring good news, though, with news two people had been arrested after travelling to Canberra from Sydney.
