50,000 Reasons to Vaccinate for Victory
Published September 8, 2021
The current pandemic has plunged our lives into turmoil. No one has been more affected than health workers, paramedics, aged care and disability workers – all of you doing your best for the community in the face of the worst health crisis in living memory. People throughout the country are alive because of your efforts.
What we do know is that COVID vaccines enormously reduce the risk of transmission and hospitalisation. They are our best chance of saving lives and our best chance of returning to normality.
We also know that the majority of workers have already made the decision to get vaccinated, with more booking appointments every day. We see you, and we want to show our appreciation for taking this vital step.
That’s why the HSU is today launching 50,000 Reasons to Vaccinate for Victory. Here’s how it works:
- Are you an HSU member in NSW or QLD? Great. If not, that's ok - join here today and you can enter too.
- Have you received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine? One dose? Booked an appointment? Then you can enter here.
- If you meet the above criteria, you can go into the draw to win 1 of 50 prizes of $1000 each!
The competition opens today and will run until 15 November 2021. Winners will be drawn on 22 November 2021. Please refer to the website link above for full details and competition rules.
We support vaccination, but we think encouragement and education is the right way to go, rather than a mandated approach. Workers should be vaccinated because it’s the right thing to do for themselves and their communities – not because they’ve been threatened to.
Thank you again for your hard work and commitment to our community, and for choosing to get vaccinated.
