Redlands residents reach 90 per cent COVID-19 vaccination rate

24 November 2021

Redlands residents should give themselves a huge pat on the back after reaching an incredible 91.9 per cent first dose vaccination rate – one of the best performing LGAs in Queensland.

Metro South Health COVID-19 Incident Controller Dr Michael Cleary said it was a huge milestone and one that all Bayside residents should be proud of.

“Our community has made the important decision to keep themselves safe, their families safe and their community safe,” he said.

“There has been a huge amount of work done by our team at Metro South Health, local GPs and pharmacies, and we can now celebrate this important milestone on our pandemic journey.”

Dr Cleary said it had been a challenging 18 months for everyone, none more so than healthcare workers who had worked tirelessly to test, vaccinate and care for the community.

“Our community coming out in force to be vaccinated is a huge show of support to all our healthcare heroes and it will help keep them safe once our borders open and COVID-19 arrives.

“We want to thank everyone who has taken the time to access the vaccination, with more than 80 per cent of Redlands residents now having received their two doses, and for those yet to receive their vaccination – there is still time.

“We need everyone to remember that whilst we know COVID-19 is coming, our doctors, nurses, midwives, allied health professionals, admin officers, cleaners and all the other staff who keep our hospitals going, will also need to continue to provide much needed care to non-COVID patients.”
