Industry figures are leading the way in getting vaccinated against COVID-19, many of them announcing the occasion of double vax via social media. AdNews asked them about their motivation and experiences.

Carolyn Bollaci, Head of Media, Australia & New Zealand, Facebook: 

I was one of the first to get my shot of Pfizer back in May and have been fully vaccinated since the beginning of June. It was absolutely a no brainer for me. Not only for my own peace of mind but for the safety of everyone else.

It scares me that children are now getting sick and I see what’s happening back in the US where I am from, kids in and out of school, and I don’t want us to be facing the same issues. I don’t want my son to miss any more opportunities to go back to school that he loves. They don’t have the choice, but we do.

I’m a classic extrovert. I miss the office and the team, I miss my friends and I miss going out. Lockdown is not my friend.

Last but certainly not least, I am desperate to get back on a plane and give all my family hugs. It has been over two years. That’s just too long.
