Townsville residents will soon be able to get their COVID jab at new locations across the city including the Strand night markets.
Seven new pop-up clinics will soon open in Townsville as part of the Palaszczuk Government’s push to get North Queenslanders vaccinated before Christmas.
The Premier will visit Townsville today as part of her government’s vax-a-thon week across the state, encouraging Queenslanders to get protected against COVID-19.
Annastacia Palaszczuk said as well as the current vaccination hub at THHS Townsville Community Vaccination Location at West End, seven new pop-up clinics would open in the coming weeks.
“We need North Queenslanders to get vaccinated,” the Premier said.
“This week we released our roadmap to reopening and we don’t want North Queenslanders to get left behind.
“This is a critical time, we can’t keep delta out forever and with the borders reopening in December, we need everyone to get vaccinated now to make sure they are fully protected when they do open.”
The additional pop-up clinics will be at:
Bohle TAFE campus
763 Ingham Road, Bohle
Love Lane, Mundingburra
183 Ross River Road, Mundingburra
JBS Townsville Abbatoir
The Strand night markets
Townsville Disaster Ready Day
Jezzine Barracks, Isley Street
Another pop up clinic opened yesterday at Pimlico TAFE campus. It will open again on the 16 November for second doses.
