Grab a jab - and a kebab

Posted: 12pm 19 Jul 2021

A new vaccination hub at Caboolture Square Shopping Centre is making it easier for the Moreton Bay Region’s community to be protected against COVID-19.

Caboolture Hospital Executive Director Angie Dobbrick said Caboolture Hospital had leased a large area in Caboolture Square Shopping Centre

It is to deliver up to 400 COVID-19 vaccinations per day, potentially growing further as more supply from Pfizer becomes available.

Ramping up

“It’s clear we need to ramp up COVID-19 vaccinations rates across Australia and this this new community facility makes it much easier for the Caboolture community,” Ms Dobbrick said.

“The shopping centre is a very central in the Caboolture CBD with three levels of free parking and easily accessible on public transport.

“It also has a large Coles supermarket, specialty stores and a food court, which means people can do their grocery shopping afterwards or grab a jab and a kebab in the one visit.”

Vaccinations are strictly by appointment only at this stage. Bookings can be made through the Queensland Health website. 

Walk-ins will not be accepted.

Six days a week

Other community vaccination sites have proven extremely popular with people seeking a COVID-19 vaccination delivered quickly and easily.

The vaccination hub is located at 60-78 King St, Caboolture. The car park is also accessible from Elliott St.

It is open six days per week, 8am-5pm Monday to Friday and 8am-3.30pm on Saturday.
