The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre at Southbank did more than 6000 jabs.

There is now 59.3 per cent of Queenslanders who have had their first dose and 41.1 per cent are now fully vaccinated.

Officials report shorter queues at vaccine hubs across the state on Sunday after lengthy waits on Saturday.

“I know that there were longer queues in the morning and unfortunately, some people were turned away in some centres,” The Premier said.

“There is plenty of capacity today…So today is your opportunity. So if you are thinking you may not have had the opportunity to come out yesterday, please come out today, roll up your sleeves, and do it for Queensland.”

Despite no cases being recorded in Queensland, the Premier has repeated her warning that the virus could sneak into the state at any time.

“We know that at any stage things can change, especially with what is happening in New South Wales. There is of course a clear and present danger but at any time we’re going to have another Delta case here in Queensland.”
