New vaccination push from the Queensland Government

From 12:00pm on 5 October, millions of people across Queensland will be sent text messages and recorded voice messages urging them to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Please be assured that the message is legitimate and the link included is safe. These messages will be sent using the Emergency Alert system, which is the same system used to notify Queenslanders in emergency situations like bushfires and cyclones. Therefore, it’s very important that people do not block the phone number.

It will likely take a couple of days for the messages to reach everyone in Queensland.

The messages will be:

– Text Message from Queensland Health. Get your COVID-19 vaccine today. It’s safe, effective and free. Go to www.covid19vaccine.qld.gov.au/ActNow. If you’ve already been vaccinated, please encourage your family and friends to do so as well. Thanks Queensland!

– Recorded Voice Message from Queensland Health. Get your COVID-19 vaccine today. It’s safe, effective and free. Go to www.covid19vaccine.qld.gov.au. If you’ve already been vaccinated, please encourage your family and friends to do so as well. Thank you Queensland.
