Queensland Health vaccination locations

Queensland Health has vaccination locations across the state. Some of these are in existing locations like hospitals. Some are community based vaccination locations, like a community centre or showground. Other vaccination locations are mobile and will travel to communities in more rural areas.

You can register and book an appointment online at a Queensland Health vaccination location. Once you have registered, you will be invited to book an appointment in your local area when appointments become available. This may take several days or weeks depending on the demand in your region and your priority status for receiving a vaccination.

Alternatively eligible people can make an appointment via the Vaccine clinic finder to receive their COVID-19 vaccine at an approved General Practice (GP), GP-led respiratory clinic, Aboriginal Controlled Community Health Service, or a participating community pharmacy.
