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.
Nick Keenan, CEO, Starcom:
I was vaccinated early, as my eldest son has a compromised immune system. To protect him, and of course so many other special needs kids, parents of these wonderful young humans were fast tracked.
Vaccination hesitancy has been an issue long before Covid-19, and these kids are particularly vulnerable, so it’s critical to get vaccinated to protect yourself - but equally many others in the community who are vulnerable.
My advice to those who are hesitating... get vaccinated. Don’t listen to bad, unsubstantiated advice online, but consider the facts and discuss any concerns with your GP.
Vaccination has protected human beings for over 100 years, starting with the prevention of horrific diseases such as TB, Polio, Measles and many others.
Consider the opportunity to be vaccinated as a gift. You’re lucky to be in a country that can provide you with one.
