While Launceston once reigned supreme as the country's vaccination leader, the region is not even the best in the state anymore.
The town's southern nemesis claimed the mantle as vaccination rates in the state capital jumped up since the start of September.
More than 70 per cent of people in the Hobart region had received the first dose of the COVID vaccination according to the last Australian government release.
At 71.4 per cent, Tasmania's most affluent region had skipped ahead of Launceston and the North East which sat on 66.3 per cent.
Second dose figures were a different story, however, with the Launceston region having seen 51 per cent of its population double-vaccinated as opposed to 50 per cent in Hobart.
Although, the rates were a tale of two distinct worlds.
While Hobart and Launceston and the North East were in the top quarter of the geographic regions of Australia, the South East and the West and North West languished behind.
The South East's 63.5 per cent first dose and 45.4 per cent second dose numbers fared better than the West and North West figures of 58.2 per cent and 43.5 per cent first and second dose respectively.
Cabinet Minister Roger Jaensch said there was continued monitoring of vaccination rates across the state, and if necessary focus was imparted on specific areas.
"We are constantly reviewing the data of who and where vaccinations are happening ... and responding by working with pharmacies and GPs and setting up clinics and educating the public and promoting the message of getting first and second jabs," he said.
"We'll keep doing that as those pattern emerge around the state."
The figures, which were consistent with what has been the case throughout September, came as Tasmania reached reached 70 per cent of the population having received the first dose of their COVID vaccine.
And with the state maintaining the current seven-day average, the National COVID Plan's target of 70 per cent having received the second dose was expected in just 42 days.
The national first dose average remained higher than every region other than Hobart, but Mr Jaensch remained confident the vaccine rollout in Tasmania was still trending in the right direction.
"We are on track to meet our targets of 80 per cent fully vaccinated by Melbourne Cup Day (November 2), and hopefully 90 per cent by the beginning of December," he said.
Last week on September 13 Tasmania recorded the lowest vaccination rate for the day. Mr Jaensch said despite the showing the state remained "ahead of the curve".
"We need to keep vigilant ... I'm really proud of the way Tasmanians have responded to the call and got their vaccination rates up. We are now over 51 per cent of eligible Tasmanians over 16 have got two jabs already," he said.
"Keep up the good work. We know that we are well ahead of the curve in many areas."
