Minister for Health Jeremy Rockliff said due to their high social activity and engagement, the age group of college students had been prioritised particularly with numbers across NSW reflecting the greater proportion of positive cases to be in among the teenage and young adult cohort.

“By taking up the offer of a vaccine, young people will protect their families, loved ones and the wider community”

Students are encouraged to talk with their parents or guardians about getting vaccinated against Covid-19.
