Palaszczuk will reopen Queensland at 90% vaccination
21.09.21. Queensland’s PalaceDuck at her ‘mad hatter’s tea party’ flagged a 90 per cent vaccination rate for the state’s reopening, deviating from the 80 per cent target as agreed in National Cabinet. The Duck is said to be “very comfortable” with a 90% target to begin reopening the state’s borders, despite lagging behind the rest of the country in the vaccine rollout. Queensland currently has the lowest rates of vaccination per state in the country, with just 59.7 per cent of the population having received their first dose of the vaccine, and 41.4 per cent for both doses. The Duck is yet to commit to a formal roadmap, unlike New South Wales and Victoria which have recently released plans for increased freedoms with corresponding targets.

Sky News Queensland Editor Peter Gleeson says the decision is unlikely to bode well with tourism operators in the state, which rely heavily on domestic travellers from Melbourne and Sydney.
