The Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District has thanked people who've rolled up their sleeves to get vaccinated against COVID-19 with Wollongong finally joining Shellharbour and Kiama in the 90% double vaxxed club.

Wollongong's double dose rate for residents aged 15 and over has moved to 90.4%.

"This is an outstanding achievement considering that just three short months ago, double dose rates in our Local Government Areas were at about 35%," the LHD said.

"A huge thank you to our staff, and to everyone who rolled up their sleeves to get the jab, we couldn't have done it without you."

The LHD said vaccination appointments continue to be available at the Mass Vaccination Centre in Wollongong, the Shoalhaven Hospital Vaccination Centre in Nowra and the Shellharbour City Centre Vaccine Clinic.

Wollongong's first dose rate has increased slightly over the past week to 92.4%.
