MEDIA RELEASE

MELBOURNE: 7 June 2021 – Synchron is offering Synchron advisers and Synchron staff a $100 Bunnings gift voucher if they have both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. 

In a letter to the Synchron community, Director Don Trapnell said that Synchron believes the best way for Australia to return to a life that reflects life before the pandemic is for as many Australians as possible to get vaccinated. 

“COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on the health and prosperity of the world and although Australia has been thankfully largely spared, we are not immune, as evidenced by the current outbreak and extended lockdowns in Melbourne,” he said. “Synchron’s directors and chair have each received the first dose of the vaccine and we will be proceeding to the second dose, within the prescribed timeframe.”

Mr Trapnell strongly encouraged the Synchron community to visit their doctor to find out which COVID-19 vaccine is right for them. “We understand that getting vaccinated takes time out of their day and away from their work, but we think it’s worth it,” he said.

The $100 Bunnings gift voucher will be given to Synchron advisers and Synchron staff upon proof that they have received both doses of the vaccine. Proof may include a Medicare vaccination report or any other proof, such as a letter from their General Practitioner.

“This is a potential investment by Synchron in the health of its community of up to $50,000, but we consider it a matter of good corporate citizenship,” Mr Trapnell said. “It is a small price to pay if it encourages our people to get vaccinated, and in the process contributes to the future ongoing health and prosperity of Australians, and helps restore the freedoms of Australia.”
