CQ hospital workers roll up their sleeves for COVID-19 vaccination

Rockhampton Hospital frontline healthcare workers are the first Central Queenslanders to get the COVID-19 vaccination today.

Hospital staff will be the first vaccinated under Phase 1a, before the vaccine rolls out to the wider community.

CQ Health Chief Executive Steve Williamson said first up were workers on the front line, including staff from our Public Health Unit, Emergency Departments, Intensive Care Units and High Dependency Units.

“While we’ve been very fortunate in Central Queensland, with just 11 total COVID cases recorded, rolling out this vital vaccine program to our community,” Mr Williamson said.

“I am very grateful that our staff on the frontline are among those at the head of the queue to get their vaccine. They have done an incredible job and I thank them for their hard work and commitment throughout this pandemic.”
