With Sydney's Covid outbreak spiralling out of control, a growing number of high-profile Aussies have gotten the jab.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Covid-19 vaccines are effective in preventing people from getting and spreading the virus, and people are less likely to become seriously ill if they do contract the virus. 

From comedian Andy Lee to Today host Karl Stefanovic, here's the growing list of celebrities who have rolled up their sleeves so far.

Andy Lee

The 40-year-old comedian received his first Covid jab earlier this month, sharing a photo to Instagram of the tell-tale Band-Aid on his arm.

'Got AZ. Spoke to my doctor beforehand and it was his recommendation. I know this approach is not for everyone so seek your own advice and take whatever path you feel is right for you,' he wrote.

He added: 'Disappointed not to get a lollipop at the end (only negative).'

Lisa Wilkinson

The 61-year-old Project panelist revealed she'd received her first Covid vaccine late last month.

'First AZ shot done and literally didn't feel a thing… So glad to finally have the first one out of the way,' she wrote at the time.  

She added: 'I have to admit, I was a tiny bit nervous, so I bought one of those tubs of Magnum ice-cream (that well-known medical cure-all) this afternoon just in case I was feeling bad tonight. I feel great. I ate the ice-cream anyway…'

Example

In a series of posts on Instagram Stories last week, the 39-year-old British rapper - who resides in Brisbane - lashed out at anti-vaxxers after getting his first jab.

'Gonna switch off. Not going to switch off, I'm not going to look at my DMs for a few days, because there's bound to be some anti-vaxxers in there,' he explained. 

'"Oh, you can't do that! You can't put all that in ya!" The good thing is, you aren't getting the vaccine, so there's a higher chance of you dying, and then there'll be more supplies left for the rest of us. And by supplies, I mean, you know, Wagyu steak. "Ooh, we can't eat beef!"'

'I went to Byron Bay and got it there because I knew there wouldn't be a long wait at the clinic. I was the only one there,' he joked.
