Encouraging the Gippslanders

Mr Chester said, "The last 18 months have been very difficult for many with businesses closed for long periods of time, isolating away from loved ones and many special occasions passing with no celebration due to restrictions."

"I encourage those Gippslanders who are eligible to go and get vaccinated as soon as possible. It is one simple thing we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the virus. For those with concerns, speak with your local GP, they will have the knowledge to help alleviate concerns and answer any questions you may have."

Acknowledging the health workers

Mr Chester thanked the healthcare workers, including those administering the vaccines, for all they have done throughout the pandemic. "Our healthcare workers have continued to support and look after the community throughout the pandemic and it is important we acknowledge their contribution,"

"Thank you to all those who are working tirelessly to keep our community safe and help with the vaccination rollout." Mr Chester said.
