Sunshine Coast residents will have greater access to the COVID-19 vaccine, with the Caloundra Indoor Stadium returning as a community vaccination location from early October.
The centre will take its first appointments from Friday 8 October 2021 at 9am, and open from 9am-5pm, seven days a week until early December.
Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Yvette D’Ath said more than 2000 doses per day would be administered on site.
“We’re excited to be able to enhance access to the COVID-19 vaccine on the Sunshine Coast.
“The Caloundra Indoor Stadium has already proven to be a great venue for the community and re-opening the centre here will make it quicker and easier for more people to get vaccinated,” Minister D’Ath said.
“The new centre will be open to all Queenslanders aged 16 years and over and I encourage everyone to register for their vaccination.
“Most people in the 16-59 years age bracket have been waiting their turn for the vaccine. Now, it’s time to roll up their sleeves and do their bit to protect themselves, their loved ones and their community.”
While Queenslanders are encouraged to get vaccinations from their GPs and pharmacists, the re-establishment of the centre at Caloundra will add to the state’s extensive COVID-19 vaccination program.
Member for Caloundra Jason Hunt said those who made a booking at the Caloundra community vaccination centre would be prioritised, but walk-ins would also be accepted.
“Walk-ins will need to wait, so if you want reserve to your place please book ahead.
“I urge everyone to visit the Queensland Health website to register online.
“Thank you to all those Queenslanders who have already come forward to get vaccinated so far – vaccination is our best chance of beating this pandemic,” Mr Hunt said.
