Queensland rollout

Queensland's vaccine strategy is guided by the COVID-19 vaccine National roll-out strategy. The Queensland rollout aims to protect our most vulnerable Queenslanders, protect and maintain a robust health system and contain COVID-19 at our international borders by protecting priority frontline health care, border and quarantine workers.

We aim to give every eligible Queenslander the opportunity to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible.
