‘Do it for the Oyster festival,’ joked independent men’s site DMARGE, referring to the T-shirt being worn by the woman administering Justin’s jab.  

Justin has been a strong advocate for vaccination and made an emotional appeal in a video to his workers earlier this month to get the jab so they can reopen.         

He said that if the state reaches its vaccination targets it would be ‘wonderful news’ as lockdowns could end and pubs could open.

‘I hope everybody is doing OK under these difficult circumstances. I’m sorry the lockdowns have gone on for so long,’ he stated in a video uploaded by Merivale.

‘There is a road to recovery, we all have a role to play in it. If you are willing, please get vaccinated. The AstraZeneca [vaccine] is available within three days of booking and for those who are eligible, you can get the Pfizer.’ 

The hospitality mogul added that his staff has a ‘role to play and targets to reach’ and promised employees they would be back at work soon.
