Another large-scale community vaccination centre will open in Beenleigh tomorrow providing even more opportunities for locals to be vaccinated.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Mount Warren Park Sports Centre will provide 1000 vaccinations each day to start and will quickly ramp up to 1500.
“The large sporting venue will host up to 30 vaccination stations giving Beenleigh and Logan residents more opportunity to get their vaccine,” the Premier said.
“I’d like to thank all involved including Queensland Health and Logan City Council for their hard work in getting this ready for this weekend.
“And I’d also like to thank the people of Logan and Beenleigh who have been coming out in force to be vaccinated, keeping the community safe.
“The Logan community is doing a fantastic job and we want to see that continue.
“The Logan Entertainment Centre Vaccination Hub has delivered well over 50,000 jabs since it opened in mid-July and we know that opening this additional centre at Mount Warren Park is important to keep that momentum going.”
Member for Macalister Melissa McMahon said bookings for the Mount Warren Park Vaccination Centre were essential to manage demand and reduce waiting times, but that walk-in days and special group days would be announced over the coming weeks.
“We want to make getting your vaccination quick and easy and that’s why we are asking residents to make a booking,” she said.
“So, we are calling on all Beenleigh and Logan residents to register their interest and roll up their sleeve for their COVID-19 vaccination to help protect themselves, their loved ones and vulnerable members of the community against COVID-19.”
Ms McMahon said the clinic is open to eligible members of the Logan and Beenleigh community aged 12 or over and times would be according to booking confirmations.
“You can register your interest and make a vaccination appointment by visiting vaccinebookings.health.qld.gov.au,” she said.
