CEO Raymond O’Flaherty joined colleagues from Metro’s Infrastructure and Stations teams to get vaccinated at Monash Health’s Sandown Racecourse hub.
Expanded eligibility for public transport workers in Victoria has paved the way for some Metro Trains staff to get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
CEO Raymond O’Flaherty joined colleagues from Metro’s Infrastructure and Stations teams, who were keen and eligible to get vaccinated at Monash Health’s Sandown Racecourse hub.
O’Flaherty urged public transport workers who are eligible to consider the opportunity to get vaccinated now.
“We all want to move beyond this pandemic and get back to our normal way of life – and vaccination is our best hope,” O’Flaherty said.
In May, health authorities announced expanded eligibility for public transport workers in frontline roles.
In keeping with the current public health advice, a group of eight frontline Metro employees got their first vaccinations.
O’Flaherty praised the on-going dedication of all public transport workers in Victoria.
“Since the start of this pandemic, public transport employees in Victoria have turned up for work day after day.
“As the situation evolved, their commitment to keeping essential workers moving on public transport only grew stronger,” he said.
As Melbourne deals with the latest public health challenges, Metro continues to run services to a full timetable.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the contribution of all public transport employees, and their commitment to keep Melbourne moving.
“I am also proud of the fact that we have continued to deliver all of our scheduled train services,” O’Flaherty said.
