The Sydney Local Health District is offering free tickets to the Sydney Royal Easter Show to children who are vaccinated this month with either a Pfizer or Moderna shot.
The promotion was advertised on the official NSW Health social media accounts and states that children aged 5-11 will get free entry into the show on the condition that they receive a COVID-19 vaccine from the Sydney Olympic Park Vaccination Centre between April 8-19.
The post reads:
“5-11 year-olds who get vaccinated at the Sydney Olympic Park Vaccination Centre between 1–18 April 2022 will receive a free children’s ticket for use at any time during the show (8-19 April 2022 subject to ticket availability).”
The post acknowledges that COVID-19 in children is milder than in adults, but warns that there’s still a possibility that the virus could cause “serious illness.”
“You can book a paediatric Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccination appointment at the Sydney Olympic Park hub, or just walk-in.
“Even though COVID-19 in children is often milder than in adults, it can still cause serious illness. Protecting your kids means helping to protect the rest of your family, friends, and your community.”
