One of the two new COVID-19 cases detected in Queensland was another Princess Alexandra Hospital nurse, who had already received her first dose of a coronavirus vaccination.

The nurse was given the first dose of the vaccine earlier this month.

Queensland Nurses and Midwives Union Secretary Beth Mohle, explained it was a complex operation.

“It does highlight how risky the job of health workers are,” she told Scott Emerson.

“We are really pleased that we are up to I think 89 per cent vaccinated in 1A, and it will all be done within the next 24-48 hours is our understanding, and the quicker we can get that done the better.”

She said it was logistically very challenging.
