Mackay Regional Councillors receive COVID vaccinations
MACKAY Regional councillors, including Mayor Greg Williamson, lined up at Central Queensland University's Mackay Campus today (Monday) to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations.
They were joined by dozens of Mackay residents who eagerly waited for their jabs at the temporary vaccination hub.
Mayor Williamson, who received the Astra-Zeneca jab, was all smiles as he got his injection.
Commenting on the importance of COVID vaccinations, he implored everyone in the Region to sign up and get their jabs.
"You need to get vaccinated. Vaccination is going to be the answer for us as a community and for us, as a nation," Mayor Williamson said.
He said the vaccines would ensure COVID breakouts, such as those being seen across the world, would not occur again in Australia.
