Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has released Queensland’s COVID Vaccination Plan to unite families, protect Queenslanders and chart a course through the next stages of the pandemic.
Key features include greater freedoms for those who are fully vaccinated including being able to cross the border from interstate hotspots in time for Christmas.
Key milestones are:
At 70% of Queensland’s eligible population fully vaccinated EXPECTED ON NOVEMBER 19
- Anyone who has been in a declared domestic hotspot in the previous 14 days can travel into Queensland provided:
- They are fully vaccinated
- Arrive by air
- Have a negative COVID test in the previous 72 hours
- Undertake home quarantine for 14 days
At 80% of Queensland’s eligible population fully vaccinated EXPECTED ON DECEMBER 17
- Travellers from an interstate hotspot can arrive by road or air
- They must be fully vaccinated
- They must have a negative COVID test in the previous 72 hours
- No quarantine required
It is important for businesses to know, at 80% vaccination coverage, there will not be government financial assistance available in the event of increased restrictions or lockdowns.
At 90% of Queenslanders fully vaccinated
- No entry restrictions or quarantine for vaccinated arrivals from interstate or overseas
- Unvaccinated travellers will need to apply for a border pass, or enter within the international arrivals cap, and undertake up to 14 days (subject to review by AHPPC) quarantine
As of today:
- 72.26% of Queenslanders have had one dose
- 56.58% are fully vaccinated
