Darling Downs Health will be providing the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine at extra weekend clinics on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 June.
Annette Scott, from the Darling Downs Health Emergency Operations Centre, said the Baillie Henderson Vaccination Clinic would be open from 7am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
“We have seen a great uptake of free COVID-19 vaccinations through our clinic at Baillie Henderson Hospital this week and we expect that to continue throughout this special clinic over the weekend,” Ms Scott said.
“The clinic will be administering the Pfizer vaccine which is the recommended vaccine for people aged 16 to 49.
“We’d like to see as many residential aged care staff, disability accommodation staff and people aged 40-49 coming along this weekend.
“We strongly suggest that anyone interested in receiving their Pfizer vaccine registers before the weekend.
“Please be sure you bring your Medicare card, a form of identification, and your own pen.
“There will be increased traffic around the campus, so we’d ask all people attending to be aware that the on-campus speed limit is 20km/h, and please follow all directions from our traffic control staff.”
