It’s summer, and we’re hankering for a holiday to beautiful Greece.

Borders don’t look as though they’ll open anytime soon, however there’s nothing preventing people from dreaming. A Virgin Australia Group spokesperson this week said the airline had a responsibility to encourage Australians to get vaccinated and would offer travel prizes.

“For simply rolling up your sleeve and getting a COVID-19 vaccination, you could walk away with a share in tens of thousands of dollars of Virgin Australia and Velocity Frequent Flyer prizes, or be the lucky one to become a Velocity Points millionaire,” they said.

“What the latest lockdown in Melbourne and the evolving situation in Sydney has taught us, is the sooner we can all get vaccinated, the sooner we can get on with our lives, without the constant fear and uncertainty that come with lockdowns, restrictions and closed borders.

“Most importantly, the sooner all Australians are vaccinated, the sooner our most vulnerable members of society will be protected.”
