Queensland hails Bunnings vaccination push as a major success

Asia's Tech News Daily

Queensland says its push to get people vaccinated at Bunnings sites has been a massive success, with the majority of those turning out getting their first dose.

Queensland recorded no new local cases on Sunday, with 28 active cases, which were all contained, and 6959 tests done in the 24 hours to Sunday morning.

Deputy Premier Steven Miles said 19,641 vaccines were dispensed by Queensland Health on Saturday, 4111 of which were given at 33 Bunnings sites across the state.

Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said the majority of those Bunnings doses – about 2800 – were first doses, which was a good sign that more people were heeding the call to get vaccinated.

Just over 72 per cent of Queenslanders have now had their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 56 per cent are now fully vaccinated with two shots.
