Queensland’s largest vaccination blitz yet to take over schools this weekend

We’re in for the biggest vaccination blitz attempt yet in Queensland this weekend, with the state government planning dozens of pop up clinics.

100 schools right across the state will be turned into hubs this Saturday, in an attempt to boost our sluggish vaccine rate.

On the Gold Coast alone, there will be 10 schools taking part.

Coombahbah State High, Elanora State High, Helensvale State High, Miami State High, Nerang State High, Palm Beach Currumbin State High, Pimpama State Secondary College, Southport State High, Upper Coomera State College and Varsity College are the schools that will take walk-in appointments this Saturday.

It’s hoped Queensland can get their vaccination rates above 80 per cent double dose as soon as possible, to try and reopen the borders ahead of December 17.

Queensland’s vaccination rate is currently at 58.1 per cent double dose and 73.2 per cent first dose.

While the whole of Australia officially ticked over 70 per cent yesterday, largely in part to the high vaccination rates in New South Wales, Victoria and the ACT.
