Those fully vaccinated in NSW wake up to new freedoms today as the state begins its re-opening process.

From midnight pubs, gyms, hairdressers and more have been allowed to throw their doors open (with restrictions) and individuals could have visitors to their homes again.
With many in the state locked down since June 26, feelings of anxiety around heading out and being in crowds for the first time in 106 days are high.
While paramedic's fear the 'scariest part of the pandemic' is still to come.
