“I am vaccinated and on behalf of NSWRL and NSW Health, I urge all rugby league players, volunteers, officials and supporters to go out this Sunday and get the kick for Super Sport Sunday and help keep the Northwest safe hold, ”said Hindmarsh.
Ryan said, “I just want you all to know that I am vaccinated and especially this Sunday, Super Sport Sunday, I urge all of our fans to go out and get vaccinated to protect the Southwest. Let’s all work together to try to get each other back to work and back in the fields. Stay safe.”
For all sports enthusiasts, there are many appointments this Sunday, August 29th at the Qudos Bank Arena and the NSW Health Vaccination Center in Sydney Olympic Park and the Vaccination Center in Macquarie Fields.
16 to 39 year olds living in Bayside, Blacktown, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool, Parramatta, Strathfield or Penrith should book here: nsw.gov.au/vacc16-39
NSW Assistant Secretary Susan Pearce called on those who enjoy exercising or watching to improve their scores this weekend and set a new Super Sunday vaccination record.
“Sporting codes will compete against each other to compete for the NSW Vacciination Championship Cup knowing that they are doing what is best for their health and the health of their community,” said Ms. Pearce.
“Previous Super Sundays helped vaccinate 10,000+ supermarket and food industry workers, construction workers and university students in one day, but now it’s time for you to get involved in your favorite team or sport.
“Our vaccination centers offer bookings for people aged 16 to 39 in worrying areas of Sydney local government, and we want sports clubs to join forces and promote vaccination on their teams.
“It would be great to see people in our hubs wear team colors to enter some great prizes and have a chance to prove which code came out the strongest.”
The NSWRL proactively promoted vaccination, with Fittler receiving his first bump two days after the Origin series ended and True Blues sending messages of support to Hindmarsh, Craig Wing, and Steve Menzies.
The NSWRL has also signed up with other companies to participate in the Great Aussie Vaccine Drive, where employers make it easier for workers to get vaccinated.
If you don’t make it this Sunday, there will be further vaccination appointments at the vaccination centers in the next two weeks.
Every person who gets vaccinated makes a difference and will help us all get back to exercise faster. By working together we can vaccinate as many people as possible to stop the spread of COVID-19.
