More than 600 local residents remain unvaccinated

Dennis Toop was one of the first Toodyay residents to be vaccinated against Covid-19 at the Alma Beard Medical Centre in Stirling Terrace last April.

MORE 600 Toodyay residents are estimated to have no vaccine protection against the global Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

National public health figures published on November 28 for 137 WA local government areas ranked Toodyay as having the 16th lowest record for fully vaccinated residents.
