This seems to be an area of discussion that is not getting enough airtime. Yes, 3 shots will give greater protection, but does everyone really need it, or only certain vulnerable populations.
VIC: 'This variant gets past two doses'Let's cross to Victoria, where Premier Daniel Andrews is breaking down some of the booster figures.
As it stands, 23 per cent of those aged over 18 have received three doses.
Mr Andrews says it's not a case of "two doses and a bonus".
"Because of this variant, it really is three doses as an absolute core requirement to stop transmission," he says.
"We know that two doses has been very successful in preventing, in the vast majority of cases, really significant illness, people getting desperately unwell.
"But the transmission as we can see from case numbers... this variant gets past two doses, but there is significant benefit and a reduction in the number of cases... once you've had a third dose."
