LEADING LIFE AFTER LOCKDOWN

Greenway leads the vaccination race
RECOVERY | MICHELLE ROWLAND
FOR the last couple of months, Greenway has experienced some of our most challenging times to date.
Whether you’re a healthcare worker treating exceptionally high presentations at hospitals, a business forced to close their doors, or a student missing out on face-to-face learning — our community has most certainly been doing it tough. 
 
But, throughout all this adversity, Greenway hasn’t thrown in the towel; not when our LGAs became hotspots, not when we were told we couldn’t have a mass vaccination hub, and not now. In fact, we have done quite the opposite. 
 
Earlier this month, The Parliamentary Library released data ranking each electorate across Australia by their vaccination rates. The data revealed that Greenway’s first dose rate, at 91%, is leading the nation in the race to get vaccinated.  
 
These rates are exceptional, and I am so proud of our electorate for rolling up their sleeves and getting the jab, against all odds. 
 
The progress to date is a testament to the patience of our community, and their unwavering commitment to health. 
 
Community engagement and the multi-faith initiatives across Greenway have been an essential part of our electorate’s success.
 
From the Gurdwara Sahib in Glenwood, where the Australian Sikh Association had created a brilliant pop-up vaccination clinic, to the Ahmadiyyah Mosque’s pop-up clinic, our multi-faith community groups have been instrumental in achieving Greenway’s high vaccination rates.  
 
The small businesses of Western Sydney have made enormous sacrifices to keep our community safe and for that, we are so grateful. 
 
Greenway knows that vaccinations are our best shot at a normal life. That’s why I know that, if we put our minds to it, we can get our second-doses up to those high rates too. 
 
Together, we can continue to lead NSW out of lockdown. 
 
Michelle Rowland is Federal Member for Greenway.
