“We’re really pleased to be helping Queensland Health with the rollout of community vaccinations across South East Queensland by hosting pop-up vaccination clinics in around 30 of our store carparks. We hope it makes accessing vaccinations as easy and convenient as picking up an item for a weekend DIY project,” Bunnings Managing Director Mike Schneider said during the announcement.

“We’ve always tried to play an active role supporting the local communities where we operate, so providing space to QLD 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.”

Queensland Health will run the pop-up clinics at the Bunnings shops to boost the vaccination drive, which has been lagging behind other Australian states. There are currently less than 33 active cases in the region, which were mostly acquired overseas and there are no locally acquired cases. 

β€œNow is the critical time to get vaccinated – we have the supply, we have the capacity, and we want people to come and get vaccinated now,β€œ the Minister said.

β€œThe Pfizer vaccine is available at Queensland Health vaccination sites, the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines are available at participating GPs, and the AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines are available at participating community pharmacies.”

Over 70 per cent of eligible Queenslanders have had their first dose, while nearly 53 per cent are fully vaccinated.
