Vaccination clinic returns to Oakey this weekend
The walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be returning to Oakey State High School this weekend from 8am to 5pm on Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sunday with residents urged to take advantage of the free service before state borders open next month.
The clinic will be welcoming first dose vaccination recipients as well as providing second vaccines to Oakey residents who attending the October clinic.
It is open to people over 12 years and no bookings are required.
Oakey State High School will be one of 58 Queensland schools which will be providing the service this weekend.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the schools vaccinations centres had been one of the most successful ways of getting more Queenslanders vaccinated.
“Our last pop-up school vaccination clinics were such a runaway success with 116 state schools stepping up to the plate,” the Premier said.
“More than 16,000 were vaccinated at our last Super Schools weekend and I want to see even more people take advantage of having a vaccination centre even closer to where they live.”
Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said most schools will be in areas with low vaccination rates.
“Please, come forward and get vaccinated before the borders open,” Minister D’Ath said.
“We know that when the borders open that everyone will be exposed to the virus – but if you get vaccinated, you protect yourself and your community.”
