Join the Great Aussie Vaccine Drive
Australian business leaders call on employers to offer paid vaccination leave to make it easier for Aussies to get their COVID-19 shots.
Welcome to the Great Aussie Vaccine Drive.
The drive is a group of prominent Australian businesses who have come together to champion the important role of employers in making it easier for their people to get vaccinated against COVID-19, if they choose to do so.
Businesses taking part in the Great Aussie Vaccine Drive have pledged to provide paid vaccination leave to all their permanent employees so they have more flexibility when scheduling and attending their vaccination appointments during the Government’s vaccine roll out program.
Leaders from Lendi Group, Prospa, Zip, Honey Insurance, Domain Group, Athena and Valiant Finance were the first to come together to launch the vaccine drive and are urging other businesses to join the pledge and consider ways they can support employees who wish to get vaccinated. Make the pledge today.

“Over the past 18 months we’ve seen first-hand how COVID has impacted our customers, and our people. We’ve rolled out a myriad of ongoing programs and initiatives to ensure we’re not only meeting the needs of our people’s health and safety, but going above and beyond to support their wellbeing too. Taking part in the Great Aussie Vaccine drive sends a clear message that we’re committed to making it as easy as possible for anyone on our team who wants to get vaccinated to do so, knowing they’ll have our full support."
Greg Moshal, CEO Prospa
“It’s our role as a large employer to think flexibly and make it easier for our people to access the Government’s vaccination program if they want to.”
David Hyman, Lendi Group CEO
“Since COVID hit we have looked for practical and creative ways to support our people. This has ranged from our nationally recognised Project Zipline, an innovative solution to retain jobs, employee talent and business momentum through the uncertainties caused by COVID-19 to our latest commitment in participating in the Great Aussie Vaccine drive. Our people have responded really positively to the Drive and it’s been fantastic to see where they are comfortable, people are sharing their vaccine experience to help raise awareness and socialise the options available to people”
Jason Pellegrino, Domain CEO
“Enough already! These incessant COVID lockdowns only stop when Australia stops trailing the world on vax rates. We all need to do our part. That’s why at Athena we encourage all our staff to prioritise getting COVID vaccinations, and offer all the flexibility to do so. We call on all businesses in Australia to do the same.”
Nathan Walsh, Athena Co-founder and CEO
“At Honey Insurance, we are proud to do our part in helping to launch the Great Aussie Vaccine drive, and hope other businesses join the initiative. Getting a vaccine is no different than giving up your seat on a bus, donating blood, or helping somebody cross the road, it’s simply part of being socially responsible and the only way for us to get the country back on track.”
Richard Joffe, Honey Insurance Founder & CEO
“Valiant’s mission is to help and champion small businesses. It has become clear that increasing vaccination rates is the only way Australian SMEs are going to enjoy normal lives where they can focus on building their businesses and driving employment and prosperity in their local communities. Paid vaccination leave is a small measure we can take to do right by our team, serve our small business customers, and help Australia get back on track."
