Don't miss your Thursday, August 5 edition of Bendigo Advertiser for your free Vax-The-Nation poster.
To date more than 12million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in Australia.
As the national vaccine roll-out continues to expand, Bendigo Advertiser is encouraging readers to show their support for increased COVID-19 vaccination in our community.
We know vaccination is popular across central Victoria as new data released by the federal government this week shows that 52.6 per cent of people aged 15 and over have received their first dose in the region.
Your free Vax-The-Nation poster features a striking illustration by Walkley Award-winning cartoonist David Pope, whose editorial cartoons appear in The Canberra Times and other newspapers published by Australian Community Media.
In June, ACM, the publisher of this masthead, launched its national Vax-The-Nation campaign on the front pages of its 14 daily newspapers serving the national capital and key regional population centres across NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
Thursday's gloss poster, printed with the support of the Australian Government's Department of Health, urges Australians to arm themselves by booking their COVID-19 vaccination today.
Bendigo Advertiser is asking readers to show their support for a safer, stronger central Victorian community by displaying your Vax-The-Nation poster in the shopfront window of your business or on the noticeboard in the lunchroom at your workplace or in your front window at home.
To find out if you're eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination go to australia.gov.au.
Use the vaccine eligibility checker to see if you are eligible, when and where you can get the vaccination, and to book an appointment.
If you are aged 40 years or more you are eligible for vaccination. If you are aged 16 to 39 years you may be eligible for vaccination.
The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the COVID-19 Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine as the preferred vaccine for those aged 16 to 59 years, but the AstraZeneca vaccine can be provided to people aged 18 to 59 years of age.
If you are not yet eligible, and aged 18 years or over, you will have the option to be notified when you are.
