A new advertising campaign has been launched featuring prominent Tasmanians cricketers David Boon and Tim Pains, and Australian of the Year, Grace Tame, urging Tasmanians who have received their first COVID vaccine shot to keep their appointment for a second jab.

Health Minister Jeremy Rockliff says a total of 19.5 per cent of eligible Tasmanians are fully vaccinated and 40.4 per cent have received their first shot.

Mr Rockliff says it's important to follow up with a second jab to ensure Tasmania remains safe.
