The Edge’s Mike E & Emma get COVID-19 vaccines live on air
ARN’s efforts in pushing the people of Sydney to get vaccinated have continued this week, with The Edge 96.1’s Mike E & Emma getting the AstraZeneca vaccine live on air.
Mike ‘E’ Etheridge explained the urgency of the situation, and said he just wanted it to be over.
“I’m not a fan of the ‘Rona, the shut down, the terrible life we’re all living, and, why wait for Pfizer?,” he said on air.
The doctor administering the vaccine to Etheridge and his co-host Emma Chow said the AstraZeneca jab is a “good, effective and safe vaccine” and “it’s going to get us out of this”.
The jabs were also streamed live on Facebook.
Chow noted it was important for listeners to always get their health advice from a professional, not from social media.
The initiative by The Edge follows that of ARN stablemate KIIS 106.5, which developed a ‘Get Vaxxed Baby’ jingle and music video featuring Kyle Sandilands.
