Queensland has no new COVID cases after a doctor became infected in a Brisbane hospital. Group 1a, which includes frontline healthcare and quarantine workers, and aged care residents, is set to be fully vaccinated by March 30. The first vaccine hub on the Gold Coast, and hubs in the Torres Strait, have also started to vaccinate people in group 1b.
