Vaccinations are demonstrably saving the lives of Sydneysiders, proven by new data which revealed there isn't a single fully-immunised Covid patient in intensive care.

Australia’s acting Chief Medical Officer, Professor Michael Kidd, confirmed on Monday that the AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines are keeping people out of hospital, even as high case numbers in New South Wales persist.

Of the 2,700 cases of the Delta variant that have been recorded in NSW throughout this outbreak, 93 per cent of diagnoses were in unvaccinated people.

A further six per cent of known cases were identified in people who have only had a single jab, meaning they weren't entirely protected.

That leaves just one per cent if the infected NSW population who have had both jabs - but not a single one of them wound up in intensive care as a result of the virus.

There are 53 Covid patients in intensive care units throughout NSW. Professor Kidd said 96 per cent were unvaccinated.

Four per cent have had one shot.

None of the 15 deaths recorded that have been linked to this outbreak were fully vaccinated.     

The statistics illustrate what Premier Gladys Berejikilan, her right-hand woman Dr Kerry Chant, and experts globally have been saying since the rollout of the vaccine: It is designed to keep you out of hospital.

Anti-vaccination rhetoric has relied on the fact that people can still contract and pass on Covid even after the jab.

But studies show those who do catch Covid after they've been vaccinated are far less likely to have a severe case or die. They're also less likely to transmit the virus, though it is still possible.

When Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a roadmap out of repeated lockdowns last week, he made clear that high vaccination rates remain the key. 

Hopes of Australia fast-tracking its struggling vaccine rollout have been thrown into doubt however by Queensland's stubborn chief medical officer Dr Jeanette Young, who is refusing to endorse the AstraZeneca jab for young people.

Dr Young was steadfast in her refusal on Monday to endorse the vaccine for Queenslanders under the age of 60, placing her firmly at odds with her counterpart in NSW Kerry Chant who is urging Sydneysiders to get jabbed regardless of age.  

She maintains the AZ vaccine should only be available to people over the age of 60, even though Australia's regulatory body has changed their advice to encourage all Australians to come forward.
