Australia's biggest banks are offering free Covid vaccinations for their staff in Sydney's Covid hotspots.

Both the Commonwealth Bank and Westpac are this month offering AstraZeneca jabs to staff members who have to attend a branch in one of eight local government areas hardest hit by this virus outbreak.

On Wednesday, New South Wales recorded 233 new community-transmitted cases of the more contagious Delta variant, with Sydney's south-west and west being the epicentre of the outbreak. 

The area also has the state's lowest Covid vaccination rate with just 14.6 per cent of residents aged 16 and over fully vaccinated in these outer suburbs.

Commonwealth Bank chief executive Matt Comyn said that from Monday, staff in Sydney's worst-affected areas would be offered a free Covid jab on a voluntary basis.

'As one of the country’s largest employers, we fully support all of the efforts being made to vaccinate Australians,' he said.

'We are going to start offering the vaccine to our people in customer-facing roles in the impacted Sydney LGAs from Monday.'

His Westpac counterpart Peter King said the bank's 10,000 employees in those eight council areas would be able to book online this month for a vaccination.

'We know that a vaccinated population is how we will have more freedom, open borders and a more normal way of life,' he said.

'We are committed to doing what we can to get more people jabbed and the vaccination rates at the levels they need to be for lockdowns to lift.
