Russell Crowe spotted queueing up for COVID jab
One of Australia’s top film stars has been spotted in the queue with thousands of Sydneysiders waiting to get vaccinated.
Russell Crowe has spent much of the COVID-19 pandemic in New South Wales and took to Twitter to confirm he was one of tens of thousands to get the jab over the weekend.
“How I spent my Sunday. Lining up with 7000 good citizens to get shot 1 of vaccine,” he tweeted on Tuesday.
“Book yours via NSW Health,” he added, along with a link to the Service NSW website.
Dr Karen Price, President of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) applauded Crowe for publicly supporting the vaccine rollout, responding: “Follow Russell’s example and roll up your sleeve to get your COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can”.
