Sky News Australia published this video item, entitled “‘Building community trust’ key for Aussies to vaccinate” – below is their description.
Shadow Housing Minister Jason Clare says it is the responsibility of community and political figures to encourage Australians to receive the coronavirus vaccine in order for life to return to normal. Mr Clare told Sky News he was not surprised by Qantas CEO Alan Joyce’s announcement that anyone wanting to travel overseas will have to provide evidence of being vaccinated against the virus. “I wouldn’t be surprised if the government mandates that and says that that’s the rule if you want to be able to come into the country, and not quarantine, then you’ve got to have evidence that you’ve been vaccinated,” he said. “We’ll see what happens over the course of next year as hopefully lots and lots of Aussies get vaccinated and we can put this COVID nightmare behind us. “A key part of that though is going to be building community trust here. “For most of us, getting immunisations, getting vaccines, is just half of the course … but with a new vaccine I know there’s going to be lots of Aussies who will say hang on a sec, I’ll wait and just make sure it’s safe.”Sky News Australia YouTube Channel
