“I have full confidence in our vaccination program and in the AstraZeneca vaccine, the rewards outweigh the tiny risks.”

“As such, last Friday I received my first AstraZeneca jab, as an over 60 – yes believe it or not I am over 60!”

“This pandemic is not over, the sooner we are vaccinated against COVID-19 the better, especially for senior Australians, who suffer disproportionally at the hands of this terrible virus.”
