Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service’s (WBHHS) mobile COVID-19 vaccination van is heading to Gayndah Lions Park, offering Pfizer and open to all community members aged 12 years and above.

WBHHS Vaccine Lead Fiona Sewell said the van would operate on Monday (22 November) between 10.30am and 4.30pm and on Tuesday (23 November) between 1pm and 7pm.

“North Burnett has made terrific progress towards reaching vaccination milestones and we need to keep this good work up – Delta is on our doorstep and we can’t keep it out forever,” Ms Sewell said.

“Whether you are from Gayndah, Binjour, Woodmillar, Reids Creek, Ban Ban Springs or any other outlying regional town, we encourage you to come along and receive your vaccine.

“You do not need an appointment – you can simply walk in.”

Ms Sewell said that vaccination remained the best way to protect ourselves and our loved ones against the impacts of COVID-19, including serious illness or death from the virus.

“We urgently need Queenslanders who are not yet vaccinated to come forward for their COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible,” she said.

“Even if people choose not to get vaccinated on the day, at least by talking with a health professional about any questions and concerns they may have, they’ll be arming themselves with the facts.

“Our mobile vaccine van will continue returning to regional areas to enable first and second doses along with booster shots to take place in these communities.”
