Children aged 12-15 years are now eligible for vaccination against COVID-19 in Queensland.
The new guidelines came into effect on Monday and here in the North West, bookings can be made through the local booking number: 1800 551 552, or online at www.vaccinebookings.health.qld.gov.au
A walk-in service at any of North West Hospital and Health Service's COVID-19 vaccine clinics is also offered.
The Mount Isa Vaccination Clinic at the Civic Centre, 23 West Street, is open six days a week:
Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays - 9am to 4pm
Wednesdays - 11am to 4pm
Thursdays - 1.30pm to 8pm
Saturdays - 9am to 2pm
It comes after two 15-year-olds were the two new cases of COVID in Queensland on Monday related to the St Thomas More College cluster in Brisbane.
The Queensland-NSW border bubble arrangements resumed at 1am on Monday, allowing essential workers and students in a select number of local government areas, including Tweed Shire, to cross the border.
But they're only allowed to cross for very specific reasons, including for essential work that can't be done from home, for school, healthcare and caring for vulnerable people. And they must have had at least one dose of a vaccine.
