New data has revealed that some Riverland council areas maybe a little behind others when it comes to covid vaccination rates.

Data released this week shows the Berri-Barmera council area is leading the Riverland charge sitting currently at 35.9% fully vaccinated for those who are eligible.

Loxton Waikerie sits just behind on 33.8%, while Renmark-Paringa currently stands at 28.2% fully vaccinated.

While these numbers may seem strong, Across Australia 40.4% of eligible Australians are currently fully vaccinated.

For some time many locals reported frustrations with booking vaccinations, however recently vaccine efforts have been boosted with the opening of the new vaccination clinic in the Riverland Central Plaza.
