Getting vaccinated isn’t just about ‘not catching COVID’, as crucial as that is.

It’s about reclaiming our old lives.

It’s about getting back to the good things.

Getting vaccinated isn’t just about ‘not catching COVID’, as crucial as that is.

It’s about reclaiming our old lives; the things we once took for granted.

Meeting grandchildren, hugging your mum, catching up with friends.

It’s about music festivals, first dates and dancefloor introductions.

It’s about an end to home-schooling, and hitting the open road.

It’s about getting back to the good things.

As a peak body, VCOSS can't get "needles into arms". But we can help get people into vaccination centres.

This campaign is all about highlighting the benefits of getting vaccinated.

'Not getting COVID' is the obvious one.

But the list of things we will regain once enough Victorians are vaccinated is endless.

— VCOSS CEO Emma King
