UV Board Statement – August 29th

Hi team Vic!

We miss seeing you all on the field, so we just wanted to touch base to say we know you’re all doing it tough in lockdown, and it won’t be too long before we can be out and running around again!

One thing that will help us get to that place is getting vaccinated. We know not everyone can get vaccinated for various reasons, but for the majority of us, it’s the quickest and safest way to get protected from COVID19. It’s also the best way to protect those who are vulnerable in our community.

Based on the ‘opening up’ of certain privileges for vaccinated people that we are seeing across Australia it’s worth getting the jab so we can gather as soon as possible. With tournaments on the horizon, it’s time to get fit!

There are lots of medical doctors in the frisbee community you could chat with if you have any concerns or questions about the vaccines. Our admin officer Adelaide is a final year medical student, and would be happy to chat with you if you have concerns. Our president Jess has 7 years immunology research and teaching experience, if you wanted another person to talk to!

If your questions are related to your personal health – your GP is the best person to ask. If you’re not sure how to access an appointment or you’re a bit nervous and need a buddy to go with you make sure you ask a trusted friend or family member
