My name is Dr. Peter Clifford, I am your National Medical Advisor. My job is to help keep members safe from illness and injury.
For the past year and a half, we have been battling COVID-19 and its new, more contagious, variants. Getting vaccinated is critical to keeping yourself and those around you safe from severe, possibly fatal illness.
Think of it this way:
As a police officer, you wear body armour because it could save your life if you get shot.
When you get in a vehicle, you wear a seatbelt because it could save your life in an accident.
Vaccine acts in very much the same way. It's like body armour or a seatbelt for your lungs: It's not a guarantee that you'll never get sick, but if you do, it's the reason you'll survive.
If you haven't already, please get fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
It could save your life or the life of someone you love.
