West Moreton opens first COVID-19 vaccination clinic


West Moreton Health will begin vaccinating its healthcare workers with the Astra Zeneca vaccine at  
Ipswich Hospital on Thursday 11 March 2021.
Initially, the AstraZeneca vaccine will be administered to West Moreton Health staff in the 1A priority
group. These are staff who are at greatest risk of exposure to COVID-19, and who have chosen to receive
the vaccine locally.
In line with the phased roll-out, the next group scheduled for the vaccine at the Ipswich Hospital clinic is
remaining healthcare workers. All remaining healthcare workers are part of the phase 1B group.
Queensland’s vaccine  strategy is guided by the COVID-19 vaccine National roll-out strategy.
