“We’re targeting areas with low uptake with these school pop-up clinics. This will initially be a trial to see how popular school-based clinics are, and we hope to expand to more areas in coming weeks,” Minister D’Ath said.
“There is also no need to book – simply walk in and get vaccinated. It doesn’t matter where you got your first dose, you can go to any vaccination clinic to get your second dose.

Education Minister Grace Grace said she was excited to partner with her health colleagues to push the vaccine further into Queensland communities.
“The Department of Education is proud to play a role in the vaccine rollout, and for many of the state’s high schools to be utilised in increasing access to the vaccine,” Minister Grace said.
“We hope that many of Queensland’s students aged 12 and over, and their families, will come forward and get vaccinated this weekend.”
