Thanks to the efforts of Queenslanders, the Edmonton Family Medical Centre will be holding our last Covid 19 vaccination clinics this week.
As vaccination rates increase steadily, Far North Queenslanders have rolled up their sleeves for the jab.
More than 180,000 doses have been administered by GP clinics and the Cairns Hinterland and Hospital Health Service since February.
As of March 13, 93% of our region’s residents aged over 16 years have had two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
78% of our First Nations residents over 16 years have had two doses and 40% of our children aged 5-11 years have had one dose and 6.6% have had two doses.
Across the state, 91.5% of Queenslanders aged over 16 are fully vaccinated.
If you still require a Covid 19 vaccine, you can still get vaccinated at the Pier Shopping Centre or check with your local pharmacy for availability.
With more Australians travelling, EFMC will be running flu clinics for local residents.
