Roll Up for WA VC visit

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, it’s more important than ever to spread the word about the need to get fully vaccinated.

Vaccine Commander Gary Dreibergs has been doing just that, the latest engagement being this morning with leaders of the CaLD community.

He was joined by Chief Health Officer, Dr Andy Robertson, and Chief Operating Officer of Vaccine Operations, Sue Kiely, advising community leaders of the latest COVID developments.

The timing is particularly crucial for the Muslim community, as Ramadan activities provide greater potential for viral spread.

Mr Dreibergs has also been touring the Kimberley and Goldfields regions in recent weeks to promote vaccination efforts and opportunities in a bid to increase rates, especially in vulnerable Aboriginal communities.

An engagement team, including epidemiologist Dr Paul Effler, is currently meeting with communities through the Fitzroy Valley.

The Keeping Culture Safe and Strong campaign has been renewed for the next six weeks with extra resources being sent to the Kimberley, Pilbara, Midwest and Goldfields, where the Maxi Vaxi bus has also been deployed.
