Health Minister admits Queensland needed ‘greater incentive’ to drive vaccinations

Queensland’s Health Minister has conceded the state needed a bigger push to drive COVID-19 vaccinations. 

The state’s borders will be reopened in December to anyone travelling from a hotspot, providing they are fully vaccinated and return a negative COVID-19 test.

It’s expected Queensland will reach its 80 per cent double vaccination milestone in that time.

Yvette D’Ath says while reopening comes with risk, “we’re at the perfect point” to do so.

“We are going from zero to having the virus in every one of our communities, and every single one of us exposed to it,” she told Neil Breen.

“We have managed it to the point that our vaccination rates are good, but they need to be far better.

“You need a greater incentive to push people that bit further.”
