Victorian post office licensee backs down over refusal to get Covid jab


Angela Spedding had cited ‘freedom of choice’ for her refusal to get the vaccine but now says she has booked an appointment for next week

A regional Victorian newsagent has backed down on her refusal to be administered a Covid-19 vaccination after she closed her post office, citing state health orders.

Angela Spedding, who had operated Merrigum’s only post office for more than six years, said she had booked in a jab after being told the post office would close if she hadn’t secured an appointment by the end of the working week.

This article was amended on 14 October 2021. An earlier version stated Martin Foley was Victoria’s chief health officer. He is Victoria’s health minister.
