Jimmy Barnes has revealed his reasons for getting the Covid-19 vaccine.

Jimmy’s son, David Campbell, 48, was also keen to be vaccinated and get things back to normal. 

‘I had my first dose in June and just thought ‘Oh my God, this is so simple’. For me it’s about getting the arts back and concerts back and gigs that can tour again,’ he said. 

David said it’s important for work to resume for, ‘the people who you don’t hear about in the media who might have been circus performers for 25 years, or they work on boats to support their families.

‘They rig lights, they’re sound engineers, costume makers, the list is endless and they really need to get back to work again. 

‘It’s not just about personal freedoms and the health of the nation, but it’s also about getting the economy back as soon as possible,’ he added. 

Jimmy received his first of two vaccine shots for Covid-19 in April.
