A vaccine is a safe way to protect people against serious illness from COVID-19. Just like the flu, it is important to get vaccinated to protect yourself, family, community and Elders. You won’t be forced to get the COVID-19 vaccination because it’s your choice to make but it is encouraged, so you can protect yourself and your mob.
