Get Vaccinated

2 panels. Unvaccinated: a lone person looking out the window of a home. They are sad. Vaccinated: I sit in the window of a bustling cafe while drinking coffee. Everyone is happy.
2 panels. Unvaccinated: a person-shaped covid virus monster punches a person in the face. Drops of blood and a tooth are knocked out their mouth. Vaccinated: I am in a steamroller rolling over a person-shaped covid-virus monster thing while I laugh like a supervillain.
2 panels. Unvaccinated: person with virus-y body and virus-hair is sucked into a swirling covid-virus vortex. Vaccinated: I ride a triceratops through space. Rainbows stream out behind us. I am delighted.


I got my first covid vaccination shot! I still have about a month of waiting for shot number two and full immunity to kick in, but I am PSYCHED. I do not want covid with my medical history, and I REALLY do not want to catch it and pass it onto my 6 week old baby. I know access to vaccinations is very different around the world. It feels like it’s moving so slowly in Australia (where I live), but that’s probably just because we get so much news from the US and the UK. If you have access and are medically able to, please get vaccinated. For everyone’s sake.

Remember, if you love my stories and comics, check out my Patreon page. You can support my work and get unique rewards! Along with the usual merch you can now get facemasks in my store. Specifically here. (And actually with the whole new-baby situation, this would be a particularly excellent time to do any of those things if you’ve been considering them).

And don’t forget you can follow me for updates on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

UPDATE: I adapted some of the other vaccinated illustrations for my store! You can get the steamroller or the triceratops on both stickers and shirts! I even did an extra couple of illustrations so there would be versions with different figures (i.e., not just cartoon-me). Click to see the steamroller version with long hair and short hair, or the triceratops versions with long hair and short hair.

    This is a better “get vaccinated” campaign than what our government is using in their ads. Maybe you should make a submission to them.

    😂 I love the last picture with the dino. It’s so cute!! I’m glad you were finally able to get a shot 💙 As for news from the UK… put it this way, I’m now fully vaxxed and I still don’t want to go outside. Deaths are nothing like what they were, but our case rate has shot straight back up…and I really don’t fancy being part of the human petri dish that creates a new variant 😅

      It seems no one can get it totally right anywhere.

        We’ve had over a thousand scientists tell England that what they’re doing is dangerous for the whole world 🙃 It’s fun.

      Thank you <3 Fair, I fall behind on checking things sometimes (…e.g, right now, since I've been too focused on the baby situation to read what everyone else has been up to)
