Mr Hazzard urged NSW residents to continue getting the jab while he blasted those who were eligible but were choosing not to receive a vaccine.
“You need to go and get vaccinated as quickly as possible. You’re kidding yourself if you think you don’t need to get vaccinated because it may well be you that gets the virus and dies, or ends up in a hospital ICU,” he said.
“It may be you that passes on the virus to your family or your friends and sees the responsibility then fall upon your shoulders for the death of one of your close friends or family. You need to get vaccinated.”
