Queensland’s Prime Minister Anastasia Parasek has shown a 90% immunization rate for the reopening of the state, deviating from the 80% target agreed by the national cabinet.
Ms. Paraschuk is said to be “very comfortable” with a 90 percent goal of reopening the state’s borders, despite lagging behind other parts of the country in the deployment of vaccines.
Queensland currently has the lowest rate of immunization by state in the country, with only 59.7% of the population receiving the first vaccination, with both vaccinations at 41.4%.
Unlike New South Wales and Victoria, which recently announced plans to increase their freedom with corresponding goals, Premier has not yet committed to a formal roadmap.
Peter Gleason, editor of Sky News Queensland, said the decision is unlikely to be a good precursor to state tourists who rely heavily on domestic travelers from Melbourne and Sydney.
