NSW Premier thanks Greek Australians for helping the state battle COVID-19


NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian gave her thanks to The Greek Herald‘s readers and the wider Greek Australian community in NSW for their efforts to contain the spread of the COVID Delta variant.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank all Greek Herald readers and the wider Greek Australian community in NSW for everything you are doing to help us contain the spread of the coronavirus,” reads the Premier’s message.

Earlier this year in a multicultural conference the NSW Premier thanked community and religious leaders for the encouragement in the vaccination program.

This morning a Mobile Vaccination Clinic opened at the All Saints Grammar gym in Belmore, Sydney, where people between 16 and 59, who live in local government areas of concern will be able to get a priority Pfizer vaccine until Friday, August 20.

“If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to book in for a COVID-19 vaccination. It is free to everyone in Australian and the nsw.gov.au website provides details about NSW health centres, GPs and pharmacies administering the vaccine near you,” reads the Premier’s message.
