Students waiting to get their first dose of the Pfizer jab have been left creeped out by footage of Gladys Berejiklian playing on giant screens inside the vaccination hub.
Thousands of teenagers travelled to Sydney Olympic Park this week to get jabbed at Qudos Bank Stadium as part of a mass vaccination drive for HSC students living in Covid hotspots.
Sabrina Boonaur took to TikTok on Wednesday to share footage of her experience.
In her clip, students can be seen sitting spread apart in plastic chairs facing four overhead screens playing a pre-recorded clip of the NSW Premier.

The video has been liked over 3300 times, with hundreds of students agreeing with how awkward the experience was.
‘Please I wanted to leave after the 15 minutes so bad,’ wrote one vaccinated teen.
One comment, receiving over 270 likes from other users, simply said: ‘All hail Gladys.’
Many remarked how creepy and odd the experience looked, likening it to a cult.
‘A giant TV screen with Gladys on it, how creepy lol,’ wrote one.
‘Gladys looking down on us like the supreme leader,’ another said.
One user said that while it looked quite odd in the TikTok, the video of Gladys only appeared on the screen for a short amount of time.
‘There were just a bunch of ads on there about the vax. At one stage there was a silly jingle “get jabbed, baby” to the sound of ice ice baby,’ she wrote.

Other students who went through the vaccination hub said the whole process took less than an hour and included a swab to test for the virus after the vaccination.
The arena, located in Sydney’s Olympic Park, has become a mass vaccination site for HSC students to allow them to return to face-to-face learning as the exams draw closer.
Students from the eight local government areas (LGAs) of concern in Sydney’s southwest are being given priority to the vaccination hub.
The hub has the ability to vaccinate approximately 4,000 students per day and is expected to give around 24,000 students the jab between August 9-14.
Generally hosting live music and sports events, the arena has not been used for live entertainment purposes since February 2020.
