COVID-19 vaccination – Video – Dr Mark has an important message for young people out there

In this video, Dr Mark Wenitong, Aboriginal GP and Public Health Medical Officer, has a very important message "for all the young black fellas out there" and encourages them to get vaccinated so they can do things they love.


Hi, I’m Dr Mark Wenitong, and I want to get the message out to all the young black fellas out there.

You may think because you’re young and deadly, COVID-19 won’t make you sick. But the virus doesn’t care about that – especially the Delta variant.

And not being vaccinated means you soon won’t be allowed to do things like play sports or go to games.

So protect yourself and the things you love and get vaccinated.

To find out more have a yarn with your local healthcare worker.
