Queensland is believed to have reached the 60 per cent mark of people who have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
On Monday, the state recorded zero community cases of COVID-19 and two cases detected in hotel quarantine.
More than 50,000 Queenslanders rolled up their sleeves at walk-in hubs for the “Pfizer weekend” acceleration of the vaccine rollout.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Queensland had reached 59.77 per cent of people who had had a first dose of a vaccination.
“We’re at 59.77 per cent of those doses, but we get the federal vaccination numbers in there about two days behind, so we’re confident we’ve clicked over that 60 per cent, which is wonderful,” she said.
Queensland recorded two new COVID-19 cases in hotel quarantine, including one that was acquired in NSW.
Queensland Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said the person who flew in from NSW on Friday on Qantas flight QF516 tested positive on their first day of hotel quarantine in Queensland.
“He was fully vaccinated, so we don’t have a lot of concern in relation to this one because any flights coming in from NSW is deemed red flights … so we’re pretty confident there’s a low risk,” she said.
Ms D’Ath said there was another case, which was not classified in the Queensland COVID-19 case numbers.
The infectious person travelled from Newcastle and spent four hours at the domestic terminal of the Brisbane Airport while in transit to the Northern Territory where they tested positive.
Ms D’Ath said the traveller arrived on Jetstar flight JQ484 at 5.10pm on Friday.Internet Explorer Channel Network
