The Queensland Government is giving away free tickets to the NRL finals, in a bid to get more people vaccinated.
A total of 3,000 double passes will be given out at key vaccination centres from today.
2,000 doubles for Friday’s prelim final between the Sea Eagles and the Rabbitohs will be given out at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Boondal and at a new vaccination centre opening up at the cruise ship terminal in Pinkenba.

While 1,000 doubles will be given away for Saturday’s clash between the Storm and the Panthers at the Logan Entertainment Centre and Mt Warren Park locations.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk hopes this will encourage more people to go and get vaccinated.
“I want to see as many Queenslanders as possible getting vaccinated,” the Premier said.
“As an added incentive, the first few thousand at select vaccination hubs on Thursday and Friday will also get free tickets to the NRL finals.
“This is all part of our effort to encourage vaccination uptake, which is why we’ve opened up our Caboolture, Doomben, Kippa Ring, Boondall and Pinkenba hubs to walk-ins,” she said.
The government has also confirmed a pop-up clinic will operate at Suncorp Stadium for both the finals and grand final on October 3.
