Peter FitzSimons tells people to stop listening to ‘anti-vax nutters’


Peter FitzSimons tells people to stop listening to ‘anti-vax nutters’ and to get vaccinated ASAP – after wife Lisa Wilkinson complained about shoppers not wearing masks at the supermarket

Peter FitzSimons has urged Australians to stop listening to ‘anti-vax nutters’ amid the country’s poor rate of vaccinations. 

Penning a column for Sydney Morning Herald, the 60-year-old said he was concerned that sporting events would stop if people didn’t get vaccinated soon.

‘We sit stone motherless LAST on the OECD list of percentage of the population that has been vaccinated – about a 10th of the percentages of the US and the UK,’ he wrote.

He said that the AFL and NRL are ‘hanging by a thread’ right now and ‘at risk’ of grinding to a halt if coronavirus continues to spread.

‘If that happens, I can whinge. And you can whinge,’ he wrote.

‘But Johnny and Jenny down the road, who refuse to get the vaccination, who listen to the anti-vax nutters, who actually believe Alan Jones when he says COVID is no big deal, cannot whinge.’

He then said that everybody who can ‘must get vaccinated as soon as possible’.

It comes after his wife, Lisa Wilkinson, and her co-hosts on The Project lashed out at Sydneysiders for spending too much time outside amid the latest lockdown.

The Project panel blasted people in ‘activewear’ wandering around the streets shopping, claiming they are out for ‘essential exercise.

Hosts of the program said Sydney residents still feel like this is ‘the lockdown you have when you’re not really having a lockdown’.

Wilkinson also raised concerns that many in the Harbour City aren’t even bothering to wear face masks.

She said at her local cafe on Thursday only about a third of people stopping in to get a takeaway coffee were wearing masks.

‘They almost all had activewear on, so they could probably argue, “I’m out exercising”, but it didn’t look very strenuous,’ Wilkinson said.

She said the premier doesn’t seem to be getting the message across when it comes to the seriousness of the stay-at-home orders and the dangers posed by the deadly virus.

‘We still feel like this is the lockdown you have when you’re not really having a lockdown,’ she said.

Sydney was ordered into lockdown last Saturday and will remain under stay-at-home orders until at least July 9.
