LNP call for more vax locations


QUEENSLAND has fallen to last place in the national vaccine rollout.

Leader of the opposition David Crisafulli made a call for more locations across the state where people could receive their Covid-19 vaccinatio­n.

Mr Crisafulli said vaccinatio­ns were the ticket to security and certainty.

He said the low vaccinatio­n rate in Indigenous communitie­s was a concern.

“We need to mobilise clinics in these communitie­s as a matter of urgency,” Mr Crisafulli said.

He said Queensland­ers’ confidence in the vaccine was also a key to success in the rollout.

“Queensland­ers need hope and a pathway out of this pandemic,” he said.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk called for people living in Brisbane’s north to visit the Brisbane Entertainm­ent Centre in Boondall to get vaccinated, with 1500 doses available a day.
