There’s so much to love about life in Queensland and we are getting back to doing more of the things we enjoy thanks to all the Queenslanders who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Palaszczuk Government announced Queensland’s Vaccination Plan in October. The plan is all about reuniting families and supporting businesses to thrive in the months leading up to Christmas and into the new year.

It has been tremendous to see club staff right across Queensland rolling up their sleeves over recent months.

Those of you who are fully vaccinated are 86 per cent less likely to contract COVID-19 and pass it on to your family, friends, colleagues, or customers. Given the direct contact you have with patrons every time you step behind the bar, this increased level of protection is so important for you and your loved ones.

The industry is a vital part of our COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan and a strong health response is essential to a thriving hospitality industry here in Queensland. By getting vaccinated, you are helping to make sure the doors to clubs across the state stay open and you are keeping Queenslanders safe.
And with Christmas just around the corner, I know this is the beginning of a very busy time for staff in the hospitality industry. Queenslanders will be heading to their local clubs to catch up with family, friends and colleagues during the holiday season.

I would like to say a big thank you to all of the hardworking club staff for their dedication throughout what has been another challenging year and wish them and their loved ones a very safe and merry Christmas.
