A free, pop-up vaccination clinic will be running this weekend at Kingaroy’s Bunnings store.
The Kingaroy store is one of 33 Bunnings locations across Queensland which will be hosting COVID-19 vaccination clinics this weekend.
Health Minister Yvette D’Ath said Queensland Health was working hard to reach as many corners of the State as possible through targeted pop-up vaccination clinics.
“We’re hoping tradies, renovators, DIY regulars, casual shoppers and those there for the sausage sizzle will all come forward to get vaccinated,” Minister D’Ath said.
“We thank Bunnings for their help to get these sites operational.
“If you see a vaccination clinic at your local Bunnings and haven’t yet been vaccinated, please walk in and get the jab.”
Bunnings managing director Mike Schneider said the company was pleased to be helping Queensland Health.
“We hope it makes accessing vaccinations as easy and convenient as picking up an item for a weekend DIY project,” Mr Schneider said.
“We’ve always tried to play an active role supporting the local communities where we operate, so providing space to Queensland Health to accelerate the vaccination rollout just makes sense.
“Like everyone, we can’t wait to see the whole community protected so we can all get back to doing the things we love.”
Anyone aged 12 and over is eligible for the Pfizer vaccine at all Queensland Health vaccination locations.
UPDATE: The vaccination clinic will be open 8:00am-4:00pm on Saturday (Oct 16) and Sunday (Oct 17)
