Housing and Homelessness Shadow Minister Jason Clare says people are not only getting vaccinated for their own health but to “get their life back”.
“We want life to get back to normal, that’s why people are getting vaccinated for their own health but also to get their life back,” Mr Clare told Sky News Australia.
He said lockdown is like an “invisible weight” on peoples’ shoulders.
“It’s sort of like an invisible weight that’s on your shoulders made worse if you’ve lost your job, if you’ve lost income or if you’re a parent at home scrambling to try and do your job and look after the kids and homeschool at the same time,” he said.
“No wonder people are sick of it but the only way out of this is vaccination, and it’s still taking too long to get everyone vaccinated.
“People are hungry to get back to life, we’re living a half-life here.”
