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.

Lee Stephens - CEO Switch Digital

I have to admit I wasn’t thrilled about going to Homebush for my first jab. I am still deeply disturbed about the three hours it took to get out of the carpark after a Madonna concert back in the day.

I set myself a game plan and booked the appointment for 9.30am on Sunday. I knew that gamers, insomniacs and families can never make such a gruelling appointment time. Well you could have knocked me down with a feather! Free parking! Not the $42.50 I paid for Madonna’s “express exit” that haunts me still.

The whole operation is managed with military style precision. I was out at 9.47am. For the second jab there were masses of people lined up for appointments at 15 minute intervals. I thought “Oh, God, Madonna will be back on tour before I get out of here.”

Like lightening, however, in we went. I was out in 20 minutes. It was easy, painless and it is funny trying to understand directions with everybody wearing masks. Get it done. It’s a great morning out.
