TELL THEM THE TRUTH

Find an adult who children and young people trust to tell them the truth:

  • COVID-19 is NOT over
  • Children can and do catch COVID
  • Vaccination does not guarantee that they won’t catch the virus, but it makes it much less likely that they will and much less likely they will become seriously ill if they do
  • Vaccination makes it much less likely that they will spread the virus to people they care about
  • A double-whammy of COVID and the flu can be very serious!

DO ALL THAT YOU CAN

PeakCare urges our Members, Supporters and Friends to do all that they can to make sure that Queensland children and young people are vaccinated – for both COVID and the flu.

Please, please, please – protect our children and young people.
