Point Cook triplets Ella, Max and Will are among the many teenagers in Melbourne’s western suburbs who are keen to re-connect with family and friends after getting a COVID-19 vaccination.

The 16-year-old siblings received their vaccinations at the Laverton Respiratory Hub last week.

Mother Nicole said the triplets had wanted to get a vaccine as soon as they were able to, so they could safely return to school and playing sport, when permitted by the state and federal governments.

Most importantly, Nicole said Will, Max and Ella were especially looking forward to visiting their Pa, who lives in Ballarat and has pancreatic cancer.

Nicole said the triplets wanted to encourage other young people to also get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“It is such a positive story of moving towards opening up and they are excited,” she said.

Werribee MP Joanne Ryan has also praised Wyndham residents who have been vaccinated.

“To my community, I want to say, this is a race and I’m glad to see that you’re in it,” Ms Ryan said.

“The best vaccine you can get is the vaccine that you can book today.”
