It’s been over 600 days since COVID-19 first arrived on Queensland’s doorstep, and Mater’s vaccination team is still fighting on the frontline of the global pandemic.
Led by Director of Medical and Chronic Disease Dr Trisha O’Moore, the vaccination team has jabbed more than 100 000 arms across the state in a bid to keep our community – including Mater People - safe.
Last week, COVID Vaccination Program leader Dr Catherine Gilbert took a team to the streets of Cherbourg in Central Queensland for a door-to-door blitz on vaccinating indigenous Queenslanders.
The team delivered 310 COVID-19 vaccinations in 10 days, and their tireless efforts were met with gratitude by Premier Annastacia Palasczcuk and Education Minister Grace as well as plenty of local residents.
The Cherbourg tour was part of a larger program to boost COVID-19 vaccination rates in Central Queensland.
In six weeks, the Mater team vaccinated 2500 people in the region, providing a major contribution to the Queensland Government’s drive to fully vaccinate 80% of the state’s population.
The Mater vaccination team has also played a key role in setting up and running the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre mass vaccination hub, as well as other pop-up community hubs across Queensland.
It has launched programs to vaccinate the homeless and people from culturally and linguistically diverse groups, and has visited Mater hospitals in Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton and Bundaberg to ensure our staff and their families have access to vaccinations.
In providing more than 100 000 Queenslanders access to Mater’s first-class medical professionals, the vaccination team has embodied the core mission of Mater to provide top quality healthcare to the community.
