Murray Primary Health Network has launched its vaccination campaign to encourage community members to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The "It starts with you" campaign focuses on the choice to vaccinate and highlights the significant contribution choosing to vaccinate can have for the community.
It includes a range of messages for different groups, social media graphics, and posters and brochures that are printable.
Murray PHN chief executive Matt Jones led by example last week, getting his second COVID-19 vaccination dose at Bendigo Respiratory Clinic, Spring Gully.
"I chose to get vaccinated to protect myself, protect my family and play my part in the national public health effort to increase vaccination rates," he said.
"Every person has been impacted by the pandemic in different ways, and each has their own reasons why they don't want another COVID outbreak.
"Getting vaccinated and encouraging others to do the same is our best way to get back to enjoying the simple things in life that make us happy."
Bendigo Respiratory Clinic director Ewa Piejko said that when it comes to a disease like COVID-19, prevention is always better than cure.
"I have been vaccinated to keep myself, my family and patients from becoming unwell from COVID," she said.
