Sydney Opera House to be lit up as tribute to frontline workers, the double-vaccinated

The Sydney Opera House will be the backdrop for a special tribute to frontline workers and those who have been vaccinated as NSW passes the 80 per cent double vaccination milestone.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said images would be projected onto the sails of the famous landmark, to celebrate the efforts of so many throughout the pandemic, enabling NSW to lead the country in the vaccination stakes and reopen ahead of schedule.

“When the sun goes down on Monday evening the Sydney Opera House sails will come alive with reminders of the people who have kept us safe, either through their work or by simply rolling up their sleeve and getting the jab,” Mr Perrottet said.

“We want to thank everyone for doing their bit to look out for each other in this pandemic because it’s this combined effort that has enabled us to hit our vaccination targets and start to get our lives back on track.”

Minister for Digital and Customer Service Victor Dominello said the spectacle was a reminder of the freedoms that come with vaccination.

“Those who are fully vaccinated can now visit a hairdresser, watch their favourite sports, head out to dinner and catch live shows provided they follow health guidelines,” Mr Dominello said.
