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.

Michael Rebelo, CEO, Publicis Groupe ANZ:

 “I was highly motivated to get vaccinated as I truly believe this is our only way to be protected from the virus and live a life uninhibited.

"My wife is also immuno-compromised, so I had the added motivation to protect her and my son from getting infected by the virus. She is now vaccinated as well.

"As we can all see, COVID-19 is here to stay and getting stronger in an unvaccinated population. The vaccine is our only solution on the table right now.

"The benefits of being vaccinated far outweigh the risk for me personally and my family.

"As we look to the future and define our Groupe policy on vaccinations for staff; our true north will be informed by what keeps our people the safest when we come back to the office.”
