Show Notes

The coronavirus pandemic has rocked the world, however one of the most amazing things to witness has been the dedication and collaboration of the world's scientists in the development of multiple vaccine options to help stop the spread of Covid-19 disease. 

In this episode we're looking at the vaccine options available in Australia, discussing the proposed rollout of the vaccine, and reminding everyone about the importance of the continuing to practice the 'CovidSafe' behaviours that have been instilled in us over the last year and a bit. 

We encourage you to visit the Government Health website to find out more about the vaccine and when you can expect to be able to do your bit. https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/covid-19-vaccines
