COVID-19 Vaccine for Agribusiness

Protecting agribusinesses against COVID-19

Vaccination remains the best way to keep our communities and businesses open.

Queensland's COVID-19 Vaccine Plan for our borders details changes to domestic and international travel to Queensland when we reach 70%, 80% and 90% of the eligible population fully vaccinated. It is critical for Queenslanders to get the COVID-19 vaccine to protect themselves and others when the border opens. No quarantine will be required for fully vaccinated people entering Queensland from Friday 17 December 2021.

Agribusinesses are encouraged to promote the COVID-19 vaccine to their workers to minimise the risk of business lockdowns, and protect families, colleagues and the community. The vaccine is free for everyone in Australia, even if you are not an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

Available resources on this site will help agribusinesses discuss COVID-19 vaccination with their workers. Please make use of the fact sheets, communication toolkit and FAQs in your business. Useful links are also provided, including on workplace rights and obligations for COVID-19 vaccinations from the FairWork Ombudsman.

Please request additional information or ask a question via the feedback form.

COVID-19 vaccines are being given in a staged approach. Those who are at higher risk will receive the COVID-19 vaccine first.

We encourage you to frequently check whether you're eligible for a vaccine so you can promptly book your vaccination and protect yourself and others. More Queensland Health vaccination locations are being added, and they are accepting walk-ins.

A vaccination appointment can be booked at a:

  • Queensland Health vaccination location
    Register online and you will be contacted to make a booking as soon as appointments become available.
     
  • participating General Practitioner (GP) or community health service
    Book an appointment direct with your own GP.

You can also book a vaccination or find a walk-in location via the Check In Qld App. For assistance with booking your appointment, including video tutorials and user guides, visit the Queensland Health website or call 134 COVID (134 268).

When to get a booster dose

You can book a booster dose if it has been 6 months or longer since your second dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

The date you had your second dose of vaccine is on your COVID-19 digital certificate.

Where to get a vaccine

New vaccine hubs are being set up daily throughout the state. Find out how to find a vaccination provider near you.

Information for meat processors, seafood and food distribution workers

Meat processors, seafood and food distribution workers have priority access to the COVID-19 vaccine as a high risk worker.

To book a vaccine appointment on the registration form, select the cohort category ‘Meat processing, seafood and food distribution workers' so you can be promptly contacted with an appointment.

If the employer has been issued with a registration code, enter this in the registration form. Don't worry if you don't have a code - while it is helpful for reporting purposes, you will still receive the same priority service without it.
