From Tuesday, Logan Entertainment Centre will become the core battleground against Covid-19.

Eligible people of all ages over 16 will be able to book via the Queensland Health website or by calling 134 268.

“The sooner you register your interest to receive the vaccine, the sooner you will have the opportunity to be vaccinated,” acting Health Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said.

“Please be patient – anyone who wants to be vaccinated, will be vaccinated. If you have already booked an appointment, it’s really important that you show up for it.”

Allow 45 minutes between 10am-4pm Tuesdays and 9am-4pm Wednesday-Friday.

Logan Hospital can vaccinate, as can a list of GPs.

After last week’s lockdown, the ramp up in vaccination clinics is timely.

Health officials have over the past week been urging people concerned about the impacts of vaccinations to consult their GP.

Logan Hospital’s vaccination clinic remains open, Monday to Friday 8am-3.40pm.

Logan Entertainment Centre is open Tuesday 10am-4pm, Wednesday-Friday 9am-4pm.

The new community vaccination hub at the entertainment centre will be open for six months.

Myhealth Yarrabilba Medical Centre, Smith Brothers Medical Clinic (Woodridge), Doctors@Regents Park, Main Street Medical & Dental Centre Beenleigh, Mt Warren Park Medical Centre, Jimboomba Junction Family Practice and Skin Cancer Clinic, Eagleby Family Practice and Skin Cancer Clinic and Shailer Park Medical Centre are all offering vaccinations.

Queensland Health says people should book their second dose appointment before leaving their first dose appointment.

The 45 minutes for an appointment is to allow time for patient screening, the actual vaccination and observation after the injection.

As of this week, some restrictions remain in place.

Queensland Health advises that everyone should carry a mask whenever they leave home for the next two weeks.

A face mask must be worn at all times when you are outside your home, unless:

• you are alone in your car or with the members of your household

• you are eating or drinking

• you are at your usual workplace and can physically distance from others (except if you work in a hospitality venue or are a passenger transport operator)

• you are alone outdoors or with members of your household

• you are exercising

• you have a medical reason

• it is unsafe.

Children under 12 and people with some medical conditions or disabilities do not need wear a mask.

If in doubt, wear a face mask.

Logan City Council says its KRANK school holiday program and Live Well Logan programs have resumed, but changes might mean reduced capacity of some sessions.
