Thousands of Queenslanders have received a COVID-19 vaccine at Bunnings after the state expanded its vaccination program.
Yesterday, 19,641 jabs were administered – and 4111 of these were at pop-up clinics at Bunnings, where people could also get a sausage sizzle.
There are 23 stores across Queensland where vaccines are being offered. Pharmacies are also part of the rollout.
There were no new local cases in the state in the past 24 hours, but the state’s health officer said that won’t always be the case.
“I can’t see that we can keep the virus out for much longer… it’s time for us to normalise this,” Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said today.
Meantime, Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles has accused the NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet of “going rogue”.
He referred to Mr Perrottet as “the prime minister’s buddy” and said he hs torn up the national plan by announcing NSW will restart international travel on November 1.
“They have just abandoned the national plan and just stopped listening to the health advice,” Mr Miles said.Internet Explorer Channel Network
