Vaccination blitz this weekend

By Ellie Boswell

State Health Minister Yvette D’Ath is calling on residential aged care and disability care workers, and anyone aged 40-49 years old to register today for a COVID-19 vaccine.

It’s ahead of a vaccination blitz this weekend during which she hopes 15,000 people will receive their first dose.

Queensland Health’s 18 vaccination hubs will be open across the state this weekend – all 18 on Saturday and 10 on Sunday.

The vaccination hubs will not be open to the general public and those attending need to have registered and made a booking for their vaccine.

“We hope this weekend will be a platform for us to go forward and build on our capacity to further open up the services for vaccinations,” she said.

“I want to remind everyone, other than our residential aged care and disability workers, if you are 50 and over you should still be going to your GP or a Commonwealth respiratory clinic to get your AstraZeneca vaccination.

“This is for 40 to 49-year-olds and these particular workers and any frontline workers who haven’t already vaccinated because they may have been on leave or for other reasons are also welcome to register and get vaccinated as well.

“I’m really excited about this weekend.”
