Werriwa eNewsletter

27 August 2021

Dear <<First Name>>.

This week I returned to Parliament with the few Members that were able to attend due to the lockdowns and border closures across the country.

I spoke on the state of the lockdown in our community, mental health and the continuing failure of this Government during a crises.

Those aged 16 to 39 who live in one of the 12 Local Government Areas of concern, can book a priority Pfizer vaccination. This means everyone between these ages in Werriwa, is now eligible for a vaccine. See in the Newsletter below for more information about this and information on permits for workers wishing to travel outside an LGA of concern.

If you are struggling in lockdown see 'Useful Coronavirus Links' in the below newsletter where you can find support for your family and all COVID-19 related information.

If you need mental health support, or just someone to talk to, you can call Lifeline on 131 114, Beyond Blue on 1800 512 348, or Suicide Callback on 1300 659 467.

Kind Regards
