Congratulations from #VaxtheIllawarra to our ambassadors and now Wollongong Australia Day Award recipients:
All made massive contributions to our community campaign and continue to do great things for their local community.
Vaccination is the only way to beat the COVID nightmare and the Illawarra and Shoalhaven can be proud of reaching our 80% fully vaccinated target. Not all sections of our community are there just yet and we believe we’re not 80% until we’re all 80%.
So, let’s continue to rally, get every eligible person to roll up their sleeves and let’s #vaxtheillawarra
As a #VaxTheIllawarra partner, you will support the local heroes, champions and legends who have kept our community safe in this ongoing pandemic.
Your contribution will empower this significant campaign for the Illawarra and will deliver positive outcomes directly to our community.
Join us on the journey to #VaxTheIllawarra.
"Big Fat Smile knows the best defence mechanism for children in communities is to vaccinate the adults around them. There is no vaccine for children. Protect Children. Let’s #vaxtheillawarra!"
