“Steve and I know a thing or two about being teammates, having played together at the Yarraville Football Club forty years ago and I am thrilled to team up with Steve today to urge all our fellow team members in the community to join us in getting vaccinated, so we can all get back to doing what we love.”
“Vaccines are available and ready, so let’s not delay getting the jab, as the only way we are going to get our kids back to the classroom, sport and recreation is by teaming up as a community and getting the vaccination job done,”
