COVID VACCINATIONS REGULATIONS IN PLACE AS ISLAND AND REDLANDS RATES CLIMBING Redlands vaccination rates have exceeded 93.5% single vaccination and 85% double vaccinated. Those vaccination figures make the Redlands and our Islands one of the highest Covid-19 vaccination rates in Australia. The latest figures have been provided by Redlands MP Kim Richards. She congratulated the community of her electorate on the high participation rate in obtaining vaccination against the Covid strains. "This is very good news for Queensland and very good news for the Redlands and our islands.” The MP also met with the club industry at Club Macleay to explain the vaccination restrictions introduced on December 17. From that date, the unvaccinated were deemed by the Chief Health Office of Queensland not to be able to enter clubs, restaurants and cafes. (see report elsewhere) Restrictions have eased to the point that face masks are no longer mandatory on island passenger ferries. All three Covid vaccines are now readily available on our islands. The Moderna, AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines, are now providing a greater range of choice. The islands have never had a ‘better opportunity’ to get vaccinated. Our pharmacies and surgeries on both Macleay and Russell Islands are offering vaccination, including Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna, depending on location.
