Medical and Scientific: Labor MP with breast cancer volunteers for COVID-19 jab

24 Feb 2021 - Medical and Scientific

Labor MP Peta Murphy, who is undergoing treatment for metastatic breast cancer, volunteered to get her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine in front of dozens of journalists and television cameras to show other people with underlying health conditions it was safe. ‘‘I genuinely volunteered to do it to try to give other people confidence,’’ she said. ‘‘It was really to show people that have an underlying health condition that puts them into the phase 1b category, that I’ve got confidence in the vaccine, to be able to take it.’’
