Darling Downs Health will provide doses of the Covid-19 Pfizer vaccine at a clinic at the Kingaroy Showgrounds on Thursday and Friday.

If you have questions about the vaccine, talk to your doctor or health care worker to get the most up-to-date and correct information. If you plan to attend the clinic, please bring ID, your Medicare card, and a pen.


Selected Bunnings stores across Queensland will host pop-up vaccination clinics to further increase access to the Covid-19 vaccine this weekend.

These include the Kingaroy store, as well as the Dalby, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Maryborough stores.

When: Saturday, October 16 and Sunday, October 17

Time: 8am– 4pm.

Bunnings Kingaroy – 2 Walter Road, Kingaroy 4610 and Bunnings Dalby – 17775 Warrego Highway, Dalby 4405

Health minister Yvette D’Ath said Queensland Health was working hard to ensure as many corners of the state as possible were targeted through pop-up vaccination clinics.

“So not only can you get the vaccine at established Queensland Health vaccination centres, GPs, pharmacies and outreach clinics – you will also be able to get your jab at one of 33 Bunnings stores this weekend,” she said.

“We’re hoping tradies, renovators, DIY regulars, casual shoppers and those there for the sausage sizzle will all come forward to get vaccinated – and we thank Bunnings for their help to get these sites operational.

“If you see a vaccination clinic at your local Bunnings and haven’t yet been vaccinated, please walk in and get the jab.”

Bunnings Managing Director Mike Schneider said they were really pleased to be helping Queensland Health with the rollout of community vaccinations across southeast Queensland by hosting hubs in the store carparks.

“We hope it makes accessing vaccinations as easy and convenient as picking up an item for a weekend DIY project,” Mr Schneider said.

“We’ve always tried to play an active role supporting the local communities where we operate, so providing space to Queensland Health to accelerate the vaccination rollout just makes sense.

“Like everyone, we can’t wait to see the whole community protected so we can all get back to doing the things we love.”

Anyone aged 12 and over is now eligible for the Pfizer vaccine at all Queensland Health vaccination locations.

“Now is the critical time to get vaccinated – we have the supply, we have the capacity, and we want people to come and get vaccinated now,“ Ms D’Ath said.

“The Pfizer vaccine is available at Queensland Health vaccination sites, the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines are available at participating GPs, and the AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines are available at participating community pharmacies.”

Opening hours and other information will be available via closer to the weekend.
