Why are there so many vaccinated people in hospital?

It may be confronting to hear there are more vaccinated people than unvaccinated people in hospital – but it’s actually a good thing.

The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter flew to Mount Warning at around 3pm yesterday afternoon following reports that a bushwalker had injured herself on the climb.

A paramedic was winched down onto helipad one on Mount Warning to assess the injuries of the 60-year-old female patient.

The bushwalker was found to be suffering injuries to her lower leg and was winched into the helicopter assisted by the paramedic.

She was flown to the Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.
