Watch Dr. J and Randa's Video For 'Vax The Nation'

Chris Cudby / Thursday 2nd December, 2021 3:04PM

Tāmaki Makaurau hip hop champ Randa has teamed up with Dr J, aka moustachioed "new face of COVID" scientist Joel Rindelaub, to spread the word about the benefits of getting vaccinated (and the real dangers of not doing so) with new anthem 'Vax the Nation'. Joyously nerdcore in intent and execution, the track's video directed by Matt Cooke features appearances from such authorities on the subject as scientists Dr Siouxsie Wiles, Chief Science Advisor Dame Juliet Gerrard and Jin Russell, plus politicians Chlöe Swarbrick and David Seymour pop up too. At its core a health-positive safety message to the community, 'Vax the Nation' intends to help clear up any confusion around getting the jab...

“With so much misinformation floating around about vaccine safety, we need to find new ways to share science... Currently there aren’t a lot of hip-hop lyrics dedicated to scientific advancement.” - Joel Rindelaub

"I’m not a huge hip-hop head but I was happy to contribute to this message.” - Dr Siouxsie Wiles
