Queensland Chief Health Officer Dr John Gerrard said the states death toll has surpassed 100

Queensland residents who had their second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in October or earlier are now eligible for a third jab.

Falling hospitalisation numbers over a period of days would indicate the peak had passed said Dr Gerrard.

“We’ll see when we get there … I’m thinking two, three or four days. That’s the sort of number we should be looking for,” he said.

“The real proof will be when the numbers of patients start to fall and so that will be a number of days after the actual true peak and transmission and true peak of admission to hospital.”
