The vaccine rollout on the Gold Coast continues to pick up speed but the city’s overall rate continues to lag behind the Queensland average.
However, some areas on the Glitter Strip are performing much better than others.
Queensland’s first dose vaccination rate has hit 60.3 per cent following the state’s ‘Super Pfizer’ weekend where almost 57-thousand jabs were administered.

A massive 6748 jabs were done at the Broadbeach vaccination centre across Saturday and Sunday.
There is now 41.8 per cent of eligible Queenslanders who are fully vaccinated.
Overall on the Gold Coast, 57.3 per cent of people aged 15 and over have now had their first jab while just 39 per cent are fully vaccinated.
According to weekly figures published by the federal health authorities on Monday, Ormeau-Oxenford has the highest number of first doses with 60,154 jabs and the highest number of second doses with 39,319.
But because the area has by far the highest population eligible for a vaccine, its overall rates are the lowest at 52.8 per cent first dose, equal with Nerang, and 34.5 per cent fully vaccinated.
Broadbeach-Burleigh has the highest percentage of vaccinated people with 63.9 per cent receiving their first dose and 44.2 per cent having both.
Coolangatta is the next best area for first doses with 63.1 per cent of the population getting their first jab and 42.3 per cent having both, putting it on par with Gold Coast North.
