Dear Newsagents,

Please see below the information pertaining to getting vaccinated.

The Prime Minister has stated clearly over the last month as soon as we hit between 70%-80% for the second dose he will re-open the country COVID19 safe (with the cooperation of the State Premiers) as harsh lockdown are decimating Australia’s economy,  small business, and peoples mental health.

Getting children back to school in NSW & Victoria is a complete priority.

All the vaccines are safe and the proof is in the data that they are extremely effective with a slower rate of hospitalisations and deaths if you are fully vaccinated.

Everyone now from 16 years and above is eligible and can book in now and get vaccinated.

Getting vaccinated keeps yourself, your family, your staff, and the community safe.

Vaccination is the only way out of all of this BOOK IN NOW.

Currently 55% of Australians have had their first dose of the vaccine

Currently 32% of Australians are fully vaccinated

The sooner we get to 70%-80% vaccination rates the sooner we get back to COVID19 normal, please do your bit.

Yours sincerely,

Brendan Tohill | Chief Executive Officer
