The federal government's plan to vaccinate everyone in the country by October will be a "big stretch", the premier of the nation's most populous state says.
Vaccinating NSW's population of six million by October "is a big stretch even for the first shot", Premier Gladys Berejiklian told reporters on Tuesday.
The premier laid the blame for delays at the federal government's feet.
"The NSW government was asked to do 300,000 and we've done more than a third of that already. We're actually ahead of schedule in terms of what our job was.
"It's up to the Commonwealth to work with us to allows us to help them with the remainder of the vaccine rollout."
She said NSW would try to get "as close to six million people ... as possible" vaccinated by year's end.
The state had vaccinated 127,339 people as of 8pm Monday.
Ms Berejiklian also said it was important not to rely only on big vaccine hubs after the federal government announced mass vaccination centres could be rolled out across the country.
The premier also made it clear she wouldn't tolerate the federal government issuing misleading data about the rollout.
"We understand that sometimes there's very late notice when we're told how many doses we can have," she said.
"But what we can't accept is when that data is manipulated or expressed in a way that tries to suggest that NSW isn't doing enough."
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard last week accused federal Health Minister Greg Hunt of a "breach of faith" over the release of vaccine distribution figures.
Meanwhile, COVID-19 restrictions in northern NSW have been lifted after four days of no locally acquired infections.
About 200,000 residents in the region were last Wednesday ordered to wear masks in most indoor public areas and limit house gatherings to no more than 30.
The directive was cancelled as of 11.59pm on Monday.
The restrictions were put in place after NSW diagnosed its first case linked to two clusters in southeast Queensland following an outbreak at Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital in March.
Testing increased tenfold in the region following the outbreak.
"These efforts have provided us with the confidence to lift the restrictions, but we are still in a period of increased risk and we urge the community to remain vigilant for the next week," NSW Health said in a statement on Monday.
Close contacts of coronavirus cases are required to continue self-isolating for 14 days from their date of exposure and get tested again at the end of this period, the health department said in a statement on Monday.
The state recorded no new locally acquired COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours to 8pm on Monday, and there are seven cases in hotel quarantine.
