Government pushing vaccination by text
Moreton Bay and Somerset residents can expect a round of tex messages from Queensland Health, in a new push to increase COVID vaccination rates.
Health Minister Yvette D'Ath said the new promotion is the latest approach to increase the total of residents fully vaccinated against COVID.
The text will read; “This is a message from Queensland Health. Get your COVID-19 vaccine today. It’s safe, effective and free. Go to www.covid19vaccine.qld.gov.au/ActNow. If you’ve already been vaccinated, please encourage your family and friends to do so as well. Thanks Queensland!”
Queenslanders are urged to please not treat the message as spam and block the number.
