The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) is continuing its good work in helping remote Australian communities get access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Last month, the team visited a very remote community in Western Australia’s Kimberley region, and vaccinated about half of the population.

Tyrone (pictured) was very excited to 'be the first in the Kimberley' to get his COVID-19 vaccine, and asked for his picture to go on Facebook!

For this trip, the RFDS partnered with the Nindilingarri Cultural Health Service, who are working hard to help get members of their community ready for vaccination.
