COVID-19 Vaccine

Every vaccination brings us closer together

Australia, we have 26 million reasons to get vaccinated

Recent lockdowns and cases of COVID-19 around Australia remind us of the risks that the pandemic still poses to our communities. Vaccination is an effective way to protect ourselves and our loved ones  - especially those who are more vulnerable to the risks of COVID-19, like our grandparents or family members with pre-existing illnesses or conditions.

We can play a role in this. Vaccination helps protect us, our loved ones, as well as our communities and livelihoods. Hopefully, the sooner we can get vaccinated, the sooner we may be able to return to life as we knew it.

Each COVID-19 vaccination brings us closer to friends we’ve missed, places we couldn’t reach, and a way of life we once took for granted.

Watch our reasons for vaccinating

Our dedicated health professionals and employees know something about keeping communities COVID-safe. Here they share some of their personal reasons for getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
