Premier and Minister for the Olympics
The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced the return of the school vaccination clinics, one of the most successful programs for bringing vaccines closer to people.
This weekend, Saturday November 13 and Sunday November 14, 58 Queensland schools will welcome everyone who wants to be vaccinated.
Another Super Schools Weekend will operate on November 20 and 21.
All will target areas where vaccination rates need to improve.
The Premier said the schools vaccinations centres had been one of the most successful ways of getting more Queenslanders vaccinated.
“Our last pop-up school vaccination clinics were such a runaway success with 116 state schools stepping up to the plate,” the Premier said.
“More than 16,000 were vaccinated at our last Super Schools weekend and I want to see even more people take advantage of having a vaccination centre even closer to where they live.”
Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said most schools will be in areas with low vaccination rates.
“Please, come forward and get vaccinated before the borders open,” Minister D’Ath said.
“We know that when the borders open that everyone will be exposed to the virus – but if you get vaccinated, you protect yourself and your community.”
Education Minister Grace Grace said the days gave schools the chance for some end of year fundraising too.
“Schools can take advantage of this and offer sausage sizzles to those getting their vaccine – getting a snag and a jab has been popular at Bunnings and I’m sure it would be at schools too.
“There’s no need to make an appointment for our pop-up school clinics. Anyone aged 12 or over can just show up and get their first or second dose.”
