 Ten dollar meal vouchers will be used as incentive for unvaccinated Queenslanders in a new partnership between the State Government and Clubs Queensland.

The state has recorded zero new community cases with a total of 78.21 per cent of Queenslanders having had their first dose, while 64.71 per cent have had their second dose.

 

Health Minister Yvette D’Ath says 29 clubs in major regional centres and southeast Queensland will offer a total of 7,250 vouchers in a bid to boost vaccination rates.

The vouchers will be offered at clubs in:

  • Cairns
  • Townsville
  • Mackay
  • Rockhampton
  • Toowoomba
  • Brisbane

The vouchers, available from tomorrow, will be offered for first doses of the vaccine only and available upon exit from the vaccination hub.

Clubs Queensland CEO Kelly Egan said Queensland’s community clubs wanted to do their bit to support the vaccine rollout.

“Getting vaccinated is the best thing Queenslanders can do to keep safe and healthy and keep our community connected,” Mr Egan said.

“Community clubs connect everyone and as an industry, we’re happy to support our community by encouraging people to get vaccinated.”

The vouchers will be available from Thursday, November 4.

 Ms D’Ath also announced an independent review into the Caboolture Hospital will include 19 recommendations with a focus on culture, governance and reporting.

The full report will be made public later today.
