Australia has lagged far behind other firstworld nations in getting jabbed.

Now it has recruited the Melbourne Symphony to spread the message.


  • Euphonium Al says:

    Great orchestra, great message. Given the immediate and strong responses by most Australian governments to the pandemic, I’m surprised vaccination rates are so low there.

    • Saxon says:

      Most Australians can’t see the need to get vaccinated since very few people have (or had) Covid there. That is why vaccination rates are low.

      Many Australians also don’t really care that almost nobody can enter or exit since they themselves never leave Australia. So they don’t see why vaccination is important.

  • RW2013 says:

    Sometimes the best comment is no comment.

  • Dimitri Vassilakis says:


  • M says:

    Awfulness, foolishness!

  • Hayne says:

    I’m sure there musicians in the Melbourne Symphony who are also embarrassed by this.
