All Queensland Health Vaccination Clinics Are Now Doing Walk-In COVID-19 Jabs Every Day
Brisbanites no longer need appointments to get vaxxed at any vaccination clinic across the state.
First, Queensland Health ran a walk-in weekend for Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations. Then, it opened up four of the state's vax hubs to walk-in appointments every day. Now, it has extended that move to all Queensland Health vaccination clinics — so, no matter which one is most convenient for you, you can head in and roll up your sleeve whenever you have time.
Jurassic Park told us that life finds a way, but sometimes life gets in the way, which is what this walk-in option aims to work around. So if you've been busy, or booking in has slipped your mind, or it's just kept falling further down your to-do list, you no longer need an appointment.
"Getting vaccinated is absolutely crucial when it comes to ending the pandemic, rebuilding our economy and preserving our way of life here in Queensland," said Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, announcing the move.
"Walk-ins have been successful so far and with more supply, we want to make it as easy as possible for all Queenslanders to get vaccinated."
Walk-ins are now welcome at all Queensland Health vaccination clinics.

If you already have an appointment at any Queensland Health vax hubs, you can still keep it — that won't be affected by the walk-ins. And, if you would prefer to make a booking to lock yourself in to a set time, that's still possible. You can also still opt for an appointment at a GP instead, or get the Moderna jab through a pharmacy.
At the Queensland Health clinics, walk-in availability is dependent upon demand on the day, so it's worth noting that you may need to wait — and each clinic has different operating times.
Either way, getting vaxxed will help the country increase its vaccination rate, with more restrictions likely to ease for fully vaxxed Aussies once the nation hits both the 70-percent and 80-percent vaccination thresholds.
Obviously, if you have any questions or concerns about the COVID-19 jab, you should seek advice from your GP or a healthcare professional.
