Residents of the Ingham region will have the opportunity to obtain their Pfizer vaccination locally in September.

In an announcement this week, Queensland’s Minister for Health and Ambulance Services announced a mobile outreach vaccination clinic would be visit Ingham over a three-month period.

“Vaccination is the best way rural communities can protect their way of life during the pandemic so it’s important that everyone makes this a priority.

“Anyone who is eligible should be taking the opportunity to be vaccinated when immunisation teams are in their community.”

People aged 16 and above in these communities are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at these clinics.

Clinics will be visiting Ingham, Burdekin, Hughenden and Charters Towers.

Townsville Hospital and Health Service Executive Director Nursing and Midwifery and COVID-19 vaccination project lead Judy Morton said the outreach clinics were organised so people could get their first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect against severe COVID-19 disease and is a critical step in combatting the virus,” she said.

“The clinics will be located at well-known, community-based locations and people can register to book their appointment online.

“We will visit these communities monthly up until November.

“This makes sure residents can easily receive both their first and second doses of the vaccine in their local communities.”
