Delta Goodrem slams NSW Health over ‘disturbing’ vaccine ad

Furious Delta Goodrem slams NSW Health for using her image in a ‘disturbing’ vaccine ad that shows needles being jabbed into her head to promote the Covid booster shot


Delta Goodrem has lashed out at New South Wales Health after they used her image in a ‘disturbing’ pro-vaccine ad to promote booster shots.

The songstress was outraged when the official NSW Health Instagram account used her image in a bizarre ad that saw cartoon needles being jabbed into her head.

The 37-year-old reposted the image onto her own account and blasted the government department for sharing it.

‘I have a HUGE problem with this. New South Wales Health are you serious????????’ she wrote.

‘Needles pointing at a picture of my head in an attempt to get your point across is disturbing!!!!!’

Because she shares the same name as the Delta variant of the coronavirus, the songstress has often found herself associated with the pandemic.

She recently indicated that she was quietly thrilled that the more recent Omicron variant is now the name on everyone’s lips.

Delta said on Sunrise earlier this month that while she’s ‘not glad’ the pandemic is still going on, she’s pleased to see fewer negative headlines featuring her name.

‘Definitely, let’s move on. I don’t want to hear about this terrible Delta!’ she told hosts David Koch and Natalie Barr.

‘Get rid of her, get rid of her,’ she added. ‘I was here first!’

Natalie observed it ‘must’ve been hard’ hearing her name in the news every day when Delta was the most prevalent Covid strain.

‘It was definitely confusing to watch you guys in the morning, when I’m getting up I’d hear “Delta danger” or “Delta out of control” and I’d be like, “What? What?”‘

The former Neighbours star joked that she’d sometimes react to breaking news bulletins with: ‘What did I do? What happened?’
