Vaccinations

Last week, I joined MP Dr. Emily Henderson in visiting some of our local businesses, discussing vaccinations and asking permission to place pro-vaccination posters in their shop windows.

What we discovered was a resilient, positive, future-focused network of business owners and staff, the majority of whom were not only partially or fully vaccinated themselves, but who were proactively urging their business contacts to follow suit. I was impressed with the level of responsibility and personal ownership we experienced in our CBD and wider afield.

Even in the face of rolling lockdowns, reduced customer capacity and supply issues, these business owners and staff were committed to doing everything they could to protect Northlanders from the Delta variant of COVID-19. I felt a surge of pride in our District, knowing that in the face of uncertainty and adversity, we still focus on looking out for each other.
