After months in lockdown - Greater Sydney is set to emerge in about 5 or 6 weeks - when 70% of adults are fully vaccinated. It's a still a way off – but this is a huge step – particularly when case numbers have yet to start falling and hospitals remain under strain.

Victoria - where case numbers have soared in recent days – is yet to decide how to re-open – but will follow a similar course of locking out those who refuse to get a jab. The strategies align - but there's anger over alleged vaccine favouritism for NSW. And bewilderment as to why the Health Minister knocked back a meeting last year with Pfizer's global executives.
