Brimbank businesses put support behind #jabdone

Brimbank businesses have gotten behind the #jabdone campaign.

As services and businesses reopen as part of the Victorian Government’s COVID-19 roadmap to reopening, it’s important to support them safely.

Hamed Allahyari from Salama Tea House in Sunshine said he was pleased to play a part in bringing people back together as a café owner. His Sunshine café is a social enterprise that trains refugees, asylum seekers and people who are new to Australia. It’s something he is passionate about and wants to continue safely.

“As a café owner I am so excited that the community can get back to good things.

“Families can catch up and hang out together and we are excited to be a part of it. Vaccination is one of the things that will make this happen.

“We are doing this for our community.”

Vy Phan, owner of Sunshine Family Dental Clinic said being vaccinated against COVID-19 was important protection for friends, family and community members.

“We got vaccinated so we can protect your communities and ours,” she said.

“As health care workers we know how dangerous and infectious diseases can be, which is why we have chosen to get the COVID-19 vaccination.

“Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is your shot at protecting yourself and those around you.

“We wanted our patients to be able to focus on their oral health with less to worry about, which is why we are doing everything we can to keep them safe, including getting our COVID-19 vaccinations.”

Vy and Hamed were happy to take part in the #jabdone campaign, as were a range of other local businesses keen to have the community coming back together again.

Remember to:

  • check in to businesses using the QR codes through Services Victoria
  • maintain physical distancing
  • wear a mask when required, and
  • continue to maintain good hygiene including washing hands and using sanitiser.

Further information on vaccination and making an appointment to get vaccinated is available at www.brimbank.vic.gov/covidvax, including in other languages.
