Tasmania and Queensland will open schools a week later compared to all other jurisdictions, opening February 9 and February 7, respectively.

Tasmanian Health Minister Jeremy Rockliffe On January 30, the state said it would hold a “Back to School Vax Blitz with pop-up clinics and walk-ins throughout the state” for a week starting January 31st.

“We encourage parents to vaccinate their children before returning to the classroom, so they will be highly advertised,” he said.

Every day, different walk-in vaccination hubs are opened in different areas.

Rockliff plans to increase vaccination rates a week before school holidays as school reopens in Tasmania on February 9.

“We have identified several areas where we want to increase vaccination, so we have passed and identified more than 50 schools,” she said.

The vaccination clinic will open from January 29th and will open until February 6th, before the school opens on February 7th.
