More Border Indigenous people are being vaccinated as awareness builds and COVID cases rise.
And a young, well-loved worker at Albury Wodonga Aboriginal Health Service is sharing her story to support the vaccine drive.
Aboriginal health promotion worker Brittany Wright was asked by Albury Council to contribute to their vaccination messaging on social media.
"They just wanted some young people that have had the vaccination to encourage other people to come and get theirs," she said.
"I was happy to spread the message, and working at an Aboriginal Health Service, we want to try and get as many Aboriginal people vaccinated as we can."
Ms Wright was the first person in her circle of friends, in their 20s, to be vaccinated three months ago - and she overcame her own hesitancy to do so.
"With everything on social media, I went 'I'm not getting it' at first," she said.
"It was just that uncertainty of what it was going to do.
"But after speaking to Lauren ... when the opportunity came, I just got it done.
"My symptoms were nothing out of the ordinary."
AWAHS clinic manager Lauren Blatchford said demand for their program delivering AstraZeneca and Pfizer had increased recently.
"With the COVID cases on both sides of the border, a lot more people are wanting to be vaccinated," she said.
"We've done about 600 first doses, and half of those are fully vaccinated.
"We're slowly working through it, but every day we've got vaccine clinics going."
Vaccinations at AWAHS began in the final week of March under phase 1b of the Commonwealth government's program.
Ms Blatchford said a Saturday vaccination clinic last fortnight had delivered 224 first-dose Pfizer vaccines.
"We've also got some outreach vaccine clinics going around community and that's really targeting the vulnerable community members who can't come to the service to be vaccinated, for example," she said.
"It's so good to have people like Britt sharing messages - they know who she is and that really encourages other people.
"We support them and provide education and resources ... we've got GPs on board to provide information about hesitancy."

Ms Wright said sharing her story had encouraged other young people to seek out vaccine information.
"I've told them my story ... and they have been like, 'I had the same thought' and they're now vaccinated as well," she said.
"Even just sharing your story of how you were unsure helps. I'm so happy I'm double-vaxxed."
