Parts of the state's least vaccinated regions are struggling to bring up their jab rates, as the National Plan Melbourne Cup Day deadline bares down.
Across Tasmania roughly 71 per cent of the eligible population has received the first dose of their COVID vaccine, while about 51 per cent are double-dosed.
But a majority of local government areas sit well below the state average, and no LGAs in the North, North-East or North-West have reached 70 per cent.
Only three local areas - Hobart, Kingborough and Tasman - are above the average.
The most highly double-dose vaccinated Northern LGA was Launceston at 49.1 per cent, with the region nothing up a first-dose rate of 64.6 per cent to sit behind only West Tamar at 66.5 per cent.
Kentish maintained the title of the worst-performing LGA for first-dose coverage at 47.5 per cent, and was the second lowest for second-dose coverage at 33.4 per cent, marginally ahead of Central Highlands on 29.9 per cent.
The Central Highlands General Practice on Monday alerted the public it would be shutting because members of staff refused to get the COVID vaccination.
Back in the North-West, the Burnie LGA had only just passed 50 per cent of residents having received the first dose of a vaccine, and was among the lowest LGAs for second-doses received at 39.7 per cent.
Burnie mayor Steve Kons said it did not surprise him the rate in a number of areas in the North-West was lower.
"It's disappointing. People are complacent in the North-West," he said.
"There's an older population and the literacy levels ... people believing what's on YouTube as fact ..."
He said misinformation was permeating the population, and it had become "pretty easy to sway people".
Mr Kons said there had been barriers to the rollout-out in Burnie, and suggested holding a vaccination hub at Acton and during weekends sporting events could help lift the rate.

In the North-East, Dorset was the worst performing LGA, six-and-a-half per cent worse off with double-doses than its adjoining neighbours, languishing at 36 per cent.
It was also home to one of the lowest first-dose figures at 59 per cent.
Dorset mayor Greg Howard said the region had not had a vaccination hub until after other LGAs, and when it did get one it received bookings from people driving up from Hobart.
He said all clinics held in the LGA had been booked out so far, but there were a number of residents who were unable to secure their spot.
Mr Howard also suggested a vaccination clinic "further afield" than Scottsdale in a place like Derby could assist to get the vaccination rates higher, and the announcement of Pfizer being available to over 60s was a welcome one.
He said the highest vaccine hesitancy was likely in the "older community" and towards the Astra Zeneca vaccine, but he expected over 60s to book in for a Pfizer jab.
