Queensland rollout—COVID-19 vaccine

If you are in quarantine (from being at an exposure site/close contact), isolation or unwell, you will need to reschedule your appointment through the vaccination booking system or by calling 134 COVID (134 268). If you miss your second dose date, you will be re-booked for a date as close as possible.

Queensland is Australia’s most decentralised and diverse state and vaccinating our population is no small feat. Queensland Health is working very closely with the Australian Government to ensure practical and sensible vaccination strategies are implemented in rural and remote communities.

COVID-19 vaccine rollout

Who is eligible for a booster dose

Anyone aged 18 years and over who has already completed their primary COVID-19 vaccine course six or more months ago is able to receive a booster dose.

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 will be mobile and will travel to communities in more rural areas.

Registering your interest for a COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to secure an appointment 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.
