Queensland is coming under increased pressure to ramp up its vaccination program, as southern states leap ahead in their rollouts.
New South Wales opened their mass vaccination hub yesterday and is seeing a massive uptake in people getting the jab.
It’s hoping to vaccinate as many as 5,000 people a day, and will soon start on the 40-49-year-old age group too.

According to the latest figures, Victoria’s vaccination numbers jumped by over 35 per cent week-on-week since it opened a mass vaccination site. That’s equivalent to around 4,000 doses a day.
Meantime, Queensland continues to lag behind, with no plans yet for mass vaccination hubs. Our weekly rise in the same period was just 12 per cent.
Currently, there are no imminent plans for Queensland to open a mass vaccination site, with health officials claiming they’ll wait until they secure more Pfizer doses from the federal government.
