Our Call to Arms

As Sydney took the brunt of Australia's third wave of Covid, case numbers growing by the day, and lockdown feeling like it would never end, we couldn't sit idle. We wanted to do our bit to encourage others to get the 'jab'.

From as far as St Ives Chase to Mortdale, and Randwick to Mount Druitt, 30 Sydneysiders who'd been vaccinated against COVID-19 said 'YES' to having their portrait taken on their driveway or outside their workplace.

An inspiring mix of essential workers, frontline workers and pro-vaccination residents, from as young as early 20s to sage late 60s, shared why they got vaccinated, not just to get closer to 'freedom day' but to protect their loved ones and the community.
