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.
Steve O’Connor – JCDecaux ANZ CEO:
I'm pleased to say that I''m fully vaccinated against COVID. My executive leadership team is also happy for me to confirm they've all had at least their first dose of the vaccine, with the majority having had both doses.
At JCDecaux, we are encouraging and assisting our people to get the jab – any of our employees who can and want to get vaccinated have been offered a half day paid vaccination leave, in addition to their usual leave entitlements, to get vaccinated during work hours if they need.
We understand that higher vaccination rates will be the key to reducing the likelihood and severity of COVID outbreaks, ensuring people’s health and safety and` helping the country to avoid such regular and extended lockdowns.
We’re committed to doing what we can to help this cause to help keep our families and loved ones safe, and also because our business model is based on people moving about.
To support this, we are working with government and other partners to deliver messaging across the JCDecaux network encouraging the community to go and get vaccinated.
