A COVID-19 vaccination clinic has popped up this week at Jymbilung House at Beaudesert, making it easier and more convenient than ever for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander locals to get vaccinated.

Metro South Health COVID-19 incident controller Dr Daniel Weston encouraged the Beaudesert community to take advantage of the walk-in clinic, with no booking required.

"After the recent COVID-19 case in Beaudesert, it's more important than ever for community members to come forward and receive the vaccine," Dr Weston said.

"The vaccine is safe, effective, and free - and it's the best thing you can do to protect yourself, your mob and the Beaudesert community.

"With the border reopening in a couple weeks, don't wait until it's too late - get vaccinated today."

Metro South said the Jymbilung House site was open to everyone, but would be targeting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by providing vaccinations in a familiar setting with easy access and cultural support.

They said the clinic would open daily from 9.30am-3pm until Friday, November 26 and return for five days from 10amon Monday, December 13 to offer second doses.

It is located at 9-13 Summerfield Dr, Beaudesert QLD 4285.
