Coffee catch ups with your friends. Browsing the local shops. Seeing live music at the pub. Catching a new art exhibition. Finally getting that kitchen renovation done.

We’re all dreaming of the things we miss and wondering when our favourite businesses will reopen their doors.

While we’ve all pitched in to keep our local economy moving – spending local and recommending local businesses – the most important thing we can do right now to support local business is to get vaccinated.

Having our community vaccinated against COVID-19 is how we get back to business. It’s our way towards a great summer on the Peninsula doing the things we love.

Our economic recovery and high vaccination levels go hand in hand. When more people are vaccinated, there will be fewer outbreaks and less need for restrictions. Which means businesses will be able to open – and stay open.

Mornington Peninsula Shire has approved a $10 million COVID-19 recovery plan for our economy and we strongly encourage our community to get vaccinated to support our local businesses in re-opening as quickly as possible.

Local businesses need our support now more than ever. Let’s get vaccinated so we can all get back to business!
