COVID-19: Vaccine Information

Wide Bay COVID-19 Vaccination Program

Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service's COVID-19 vaccination hubs  support the ongoing implementation of Queensland’s COVID-19 vaccination program and supplement the rollout being led by the primary sector.

The fixed community hubs are located in Maryborough, Hervey Bay and Bundaberg, and WBHHS vaccination teams also conduct outreach clinics across the region as they are able.

To register online for an appointment at a WBHHS hub, or any other vaccine provider, visit the Queensland Government’s Register to be Vaccinated (health.qld.gov.au) page. This will require you to first answer some questions and register you for an appointment.

When can I receive the vaccine?

All people aged 5 and over are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.

How do I access the vaccine locally?

WBHHS is just one of a number of community vaccine providers. Selected medical practices, pharmacies and other providers across the Wide Bay Burnett region are also offering vaccination.

How do I make an appointment?

All people aged 5 and over are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. Community members can register online for a vaccination appointment by going to the Queensland Government’s Register to be Vaccinated (health.qld.gov.au) page.

Our WBHHS clinics do take walk ins (people without an appointment), but by registering for an appointment, you can ensure you do not have to wait as long, when you turn up at the clinic. You can even register outside the clinic and then walk in!

Please eat before your appointment or walking in. Also stay well hydrated.

What vaccine is being offered?

Our WBHHS clinics offer Pfizer vaccine only.

Visit the Vaccine clinic finder and answer some questions to find your closest vaccination clinic if you wish to have an alternative COVID-19 vaccine.
