Isla Fisher has shared her excitement that a Covid-19 vaccine is on the horizon, and hopes the respiratory virus will be ‘zapped’ in 2021.

The actress, 44, who recently moved to Australia with her husband, Sacha Baron Cohen, and their three children, took to Instagram on Monday to share a photo of herself in a futuristic superhero costume.

Her post comes after Prime Minister Scott Morrison defended his strategy to roll out the Covid-19 vaccine, saying there will be no ‘shortcuts’ when it comes to approving a jab.

Mr Morrison said Australia was in a much better place than other countries battling the pandemic and the vaccine therefore wouldn’t need to be rolled out any earlier than March.

‘On the vaccine, you don’t rush to failure. That’s very dangerous for Australians. Those who suggest that, I think it’s a naive suggestion,’ he said on Friday.

‘For the vaccine to be successful, Australians have to have confidence in it.’

The government has struck up deals with AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Novavax to roll out the jab, which Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt expects should reach all Australians by October.

Meanwhile, Isla and her family are believed to be living in Australia permanently, as the pandemic rages on in the United States.

In November, the Borat star, 49, and the Wedding Crashers actress took the major step of enrolling their children at a school in Sydney.

Until recently, the notoriously private family were living in Los Angeles. 

Isla, who was raised in Perth from the age of six, has always dreamt of bringing up her children in Australia.

She told Marie Claire in 2018: ‘I have this secret fantasy of slowing down, moving to Byron Bay, getting off the grid and sitting on the sand with a Vegemite sandwich.’
