COVID-19 Vaccine

Health Consumers Queensland believes that every Queenslander should be able to find high quality information about the COVID-19 vaccine and the roll-out plans in Queensland to be able to make informed choices and decisions.

Health Consumers Queensland invited First Nations community members (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples) to join Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young and Chief Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Officer and Deputy Director-General Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Division, Haylene Grogan, to an online forum about the COVID vaccine.

The evening’s Question and Answer forum was the first of many activities planned by health services and governments to ensure First Nations people have a chance to learn more about the vaccine and ask questions.

 

Queensland’s Chief Health Officer, Dr Jeannette Young, has tirelessly led the state’s response to COVID-19. On 23 February we were delighted to invite consumers and carers and NGOs to join Dr Young to hear the latest on the Queensland rollout and to have their vaccination questions answered.
