Queensland has recorded one new community Covid case linked to the Sunnybank cluster.

The new case is a 15-year-old student of St Thomas More College.

But Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says she is not concerned about the case.

“We're not concerned about this at all because it's linked to that Sunnybank cluster," she says.

“Once again, a big thank you to all those families who are doing absolutely the right thing and staying at home, you are keeping Queenslanders safe.”

One new overseas acquired case was detected in hotel quarantine.

It comes as Queesnland children aged 12-15 have received 9,000 doses of Pfizer already in the state which rolled out yesterday.

“And we have 15,127 children booked in," Ms Palaszczuk says.

Ms Palaszczuk urged parents to register their children for the vaccination.

There were 20,928 vaccines delivered yesterday, with 56.68 per cent having received one dose of the vaccine and about 38.33 per cent fully vaccinated.

Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young thanked the efforts of the families quarantining, the school and local health authorities, it appears Queensland has got this outbreak covered.

“But we could have another case come into Queensland at any time,” Dr Young says.

Police stopped 8,332 vehicles at Queensland’s border and 248 were turned around.
