Regional Enterprise Development Institute (REDI.E) has launched a campaign aimed at encouraging communities in Western New South Wales to get vaccinated.
The recent initiative, that has seen many businesses and organisations throughout Far West NSW receive T-Shirts with slogans such as, ‘Get Jabbed’, ‘Get vaxxed’, and ‘Get the Jab, Keep us safe’, is designed to encourage people to get their COVID-19 vaccinations so they can stay safe and get back to doing the things they love.
The region has done it extremely tough over the past few months and it’s so important that people understand that the vaccine is their ticket to a safer future.
Understanding the fact that the sooner communities are vaccinated, the sooner everyone can start to move on from the effects of the pandemic is key to this campaign. COVID-19 has affected just about everyone. People have lost their jobs, been forced to stay away from their families, and have had to stop doing many things that they enjoy.
The ‘Get Jabbed’ campaign wants to encourage people to come together as a community and work towards getting vaccinated, not only for the safety of themselves, but also for the safety of the region as a whole, especially those who are more vulnerable.
Bourke Highschool (pictured below), has impressingly got all their teachers double vaccinated, with their year 12 students also taking part in achieving the goal.
Distributed throughout the Cobar community, Thompson Family Dentist, Cobar Medical Centre, Cobar Respiratory Clinic, Cobar Hospital and Cobar Community Health staff (pictured), can also be seen wearing their donated T-shirts, spreading the word to get the jab and stay safe.
High vaccination rates save lives. More jabs in arms won't just protect you as an individual, it protects your family and the community as a whole.
This initiative is funded/supported by the Australian Government.
