NSW has given more than 10,000 people their first doses of the coronavirus vaccine in a week.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian visited Westmead Hospital, where she said 48 people an hour are getting the vaccine – and “that can be scaled up”.
In the first week at the three hubs in Sydney, there have been 10,339 jabs delivered.
The premier said she was “really pleased with that result”.
“NSW is well on track to meet its target of 35,000 vaccines in the first three weeks,” she said.
“All we need are the doses to arrive.
“If we get more doses more people can receive the vaccine and that is our aim.”
Ms Berejiklian said she would get the AstraZeneca vaccine, adding it was an important step to returning to normal.
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard called the vaccine rollout a “wartime effort”.
Newcastle and Wollongong will be the first regional hubs to open.
