Queensland women urged to get vaccinated to protect themselves

Women of all ages in Queensland, particularly those experiencing domestic and family violence, are being encouraged to get a COVID-19 vaccination to protect themselves and their families.

While speaking at the Micah Projects Women’s Safety, Security + Stable Housing Forum today, Minister for Communities and Housing Leeanne Enoch called on women to roll up their sleeves and get the jab.

“The safety and wellbeing of women is so important, particularly as we tackle the issue of domestic and family violence in our communities,” Ms Enoch said.

“Getting the COVID-19 vaccination is one of the ways women can protect themselves and ensure their health and the health of their families.

The Micah Projects Women’s Safety, Security + Stable Housing Forum brought together women, service providers and representatives from government and community organisations to hear ideas and solutions for progressing women’s safety, security and stable housing in our community.
