Mr Hunt said in the past seven days, more than two million vaccinations had been administered around Australia.
After 313,000 vaccinations yesterday, Australia has now totalled more than 31 million jabs administer.
“After the public holiday, when numbers went down understandably, what we have seen is an increase far beyond our best expectations over the following seven days,” Mr Hunt said.
“We are now at 82.8 per cent first doses, and 63.4 per cent second doses.
“And that’s just over 1.3 million second doses to get to the 70 per cent mark.
“So Australians are stepping forward, in extraordinary numbers, on a continuing basis.”
