Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Yvette D’Ath said 29 clubs in regional centres and Southeast Queensland would offer 7,250 vouchers in a bid to boost vaccination rates.

New incentive

“If people weren’t convinced by the fact getting vaccinated could keep you out of hospital and save your life, they might be enticed by a $10 voucher that can be used at local clubs.

“It’s another reason to get vaccinated. Getting the jab means you’re 80 per cent less likely to get COVID and pass it on.

“It’s time to roll up your sleeve and get the jab then roll up to your local club and have a feed.”

Keeping safe

Clubs Queensland CEO Kelly Egan said Queensland’s community clubs wanted to do their bit to support the vaccine rollout.

“Getting vaccinated is the best thing Queenslanders can do to keep safe and healthy and keep our community connected,” Mr Egan said.

“Community Clubs connect everyone and as an industry, we’re happy to support our community by encouraging people to get vaccinated”.

Club Pine Rivers is on the corner of Francis Rd and Sparkes Rd, Bray Park
