A COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine “super clinic” will be running at Cherbourg Hall from August 3-5.
The Cherbourg clinic will be set up to accommodate all eligible South Burnett residents aged 16 years and over.
A Darling Downs Health spokesperson said everyone who was eligible can pre-register their interest.
Registration forms are available at Cherbourg Hospital, Murgon Hospital and the Cherbourg Council office.
Staff will be available to help with the forms.
Registrations can also be done online via www.vaccinebookings.health.qld.gov.au
“If you have questions about the vaccine, talk to your doctor or health care worker to get the right, up-to-date information,” the Darling Downs Health spokesperson said.
“The vaccination is safe and is free. It is the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community.
“If you plan to attend the clinic, please bring ID, your Medicare card, and a pen.
“The clinic will be open from 8:30am to 4:00pm from Tuesday, August 3, to Thursday, August 5.”
The spokesperson said people who had received one dose of the Astra Zeneca vaccine, which has been provided recently through GPs and Aboriginal Medical Services, should receive a second dose of Astra Zeneca and not the Pfizer vaccine.
“If you are unsure which vaccine you have received, talk to doctor or health care worker,” the spokesperson said.
