A Victorian government-funded youth body has created a TikTok video encouraging teenagers to go on “vax dates” to get the Covid-19 vaccine without their parents’ permission.

The video by the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria (YACVIC) features two teenage girls who go on a post-lockdown date to see a movie – but when asked to show their vaccination certificate, one says “my parents haven’t let me get vaccinated yet”.

“I mean, you’re over 14. You don’t actually need to get their permission,” the other girl says. “Wanna go do it now – go on a vax date?”

“That sounds fun,” the girl replies.

“After googling ‘vaccine clinic finder’, they found their nearest clinic,” the video text reads.
