After facing the virus head-on throughout July and then again during a lengthy lockdown in August, September and October, the Local Government Areas of Orange, Blayney and Cabonne have rallied.
All three LGAs can boast a first dose of 95 per cent or greater, according to the Australian Government's LGA vaccination roadmap data, while the double dose rates are equally impressive.
Orange and Blayney have both passed the 95 per cent double jab mark too - with the combined 15 and over population of those areas around the 40,000 people mark.
While Cabonne's double dose rate will likely eclipse 91 per cent come next week.
Acorss the Western NSW Local Health District, the second dose jab rate continues to climb.
Bathurst (90.9 per cent), Dubbo (94.2 per cent), Mid Western (94.1 per cent), Oberon (90.8 per cent), Lithgow (87.7 per cent) all have second dose rates nearing their first dose marks.
Western NSW LHD chief executive Scott McLachlan has been a huge driver of the vaccination process throughout the district.
He said the district, the largest geographically in NSW, will likely hit 94 per cent double dose by the end of November.
"Vaccination is the most important way we can do that and even though our district's vaccination rates are among the best in the state, we need to continue that effort to get as much coverage as possible," Mr McLachlan said.
He added those who are yet to be vaccinated can do so by visiting a WNSWLHD clinic or hub, or through a GP, pharmacy, Aboriginal Medical Service or respiratory clinic.
