Annastacia Palaszczuk 05.07.2021

Queensland had hit the 80 per cent fully vaccinated milestone this morning.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has issued a statement and says today is a great day for the state.

"Very few places in the world have got to this level of protection before a COVID wave arrives," Ms Palaszczuk says.

"The credit for this belongs to each and every Queenslander."

But the Premier is reiterating Queensland "can not stop here".

"Let’s get to 90 per cent and beyond," she says.

"Please – get vaccinated."

Deputy Premier Steven Miles is expected to provide a COVID update at 9am this morning.
