Local paramedic one of first in Gilgandra to recieve COVID-19 vaccine
Geoff Kiehne, paramedic for NSW Ambulance, was one of the first residents of Gilgandra to have received the COVID-19 vaccination.
Mr Kiehne thought it was important to show the community the reality of getting the vaccine, to help understand it’s importance.
“I had a bit of a heavy arm, pretty much what it would feel like if you had a flu vaccination. But other than that, there’s been nothing at all,” said Mr Kiehne.
“It would be the same signs and symptoms you’d expect from any other vaccination. I’m looking forward to my next shot."
