#1 FM breakfast radio host Kyle Sandilands received his first COVID-19 vaccination at the Westmead Hospital vaccination clinic today as eligible people across western Sydney and NSW receive their vaccination doses.
Straight from hosting The Kyle & Jackie O Show on KIIS 1065, Kyle arrived in western Sydney and rolled up his sleeve for his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
“I just want to go to Hawaii at the end of the year, that’s why I’m here, and if getting this vaccination means we’re one step closer to it happening, that’s a good thing,” said 49 year old Sandilands.
“It’s in everyone’s best interest to get the vaccine. I’m vaccinated for everything else, and was as a child, and if we ever want to live a happy life and save people’s lives and travel around and be normal again, this is just part of the process.
“It’s quick, you’re in, you’re out and then you’re safe. I don’t understand why anyone wouldn’t get it.
“These people are actual doctors and scientists – get the vaccine. Don’t be one of those anti-vaxxing losers.”
Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) Chief Executive Graeme Loy said he hopes Kyle’s positive vaccination experience at Westmead Hospital will mean more people from western Sydney will get vaccinated when they’re eligible.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re a breakfast radio host who wants to visit LA or a western Sydney local, everyone is urged to get their COVID-19 vaccination when they become eligible.
“Our health district and frontline staff have worked tirelessly to keep the community safe during the pandemic and now it’s the community’s turn to step up and get vaccinated.”
The Westmead Hospital COVID-19 vaccination clinic is one of two clinics operated by WSLHD with the other at Blacktown Hospital. Bookings are required for both clinics.
