我係周潤梅,54歲,係一名畫則師,我係澳洲弱能兒童協康會嘅管理人。本會係提供一系列嘅服務支持弱能人士同埋佢哋嘅屋企人。

我想保護我家人、親友,同埋社區人士。因為我想確保保護高風險嘅人,例如殘疾人士、老年人,同埋患有其他疾病嘅人。

我係社區嘅殘疾人士慈善團體嘅一份子,我認為社區接種疫苗係好重要,提防呢個新冠肺炎傳染俾最脆弱嘅人士,弱勢社群嘅人士。

我接種咗疫苗之後,我覺得我為自己做咗一件好重要嘅事。因為我已經可以保護自己、家人,同埋親友嘅安全。

雖然無任何疫苗能夠提供百份百嘅保護,但係我知道佢會保護我免患重病同埋入院。最低限度可以減少被傳染嘅機會同時避免將病毒傳俾其他人。

I am Miranda Chau, 54 years old. I am a draftsperson, and an executive of the Chinese Parents Association – Children With Disabilities Inc. 

The association provides a series of services to support people with disabilities and their families.

I want to protect my family and friends, and people in the community. I want to ensure that people at higher risk, such as people with disabilities, older people, and people with other medical conditions are protected.

I am a member of a charity group for people with disabilities in the community. I think it is very important for the community to get vaccinated, so as to prevent the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people from being infected by COVID-19.

After I got vaccinated, I thought I did something very important for myself. Because I can now protect myself, my family, and my friends.

Although no vaccine can provide 100% protection, I know that it will protect me from severe illnesses and hospitalization. At least, it can reduce the chance of me getting infected and prevent the spread of the virus to other people.
