I was asked to take the Covid vaccine at work (administrator in aged care facility) to protect our vulnerable residents. I said no I don’t take vaccines especially experimental vaccines, but would look after my own health by healthy living.

I told my manager I would leave rather than be forced to take this vaccine

I was asked not to talk to other staff about my views which I agreed to.

I had already posted a helpline number on Facebook for nurses and caregivers who had questions and may not want to take this experimental vaccine, so I was reasonably comfortable that I had helped in this way.

However I should be free to share my views to help others not muzzled.
