A traveller from Sydney to Queensland has expressed how grateful he was for being vaccinated, after being shoved into forced quarantine for 14 days over Christmas.
Brian Normieson, of Newcastle, says taking two doses of a trial vaccine was totally worth it to not spend scheduled time with his family for the first time in two years, and be herded straight off the plane into a quarantine facility.
“I’m thankful for the experts and science and that I can travel. That’s the only reason I took the vaccine,” Normieson said.
“Obviously I’m not considered fully dosed with boosters about to be made mandatory, but I’ll happily line up as many times as I’m told.”
Normieson said he was already looking forward to overseas travel sometime in 2035.
