Queensland has registered zero locally acquired COVID-19 cases as the state hit a new milestone of more than 60 percent of eligible Queenslanders who are now fully vaccinated.

More than 74 percent of eligible Queenslanders have had their first dose.

New contact tracking sites have been added after two people tested positive for COVID-19 in New South Wales after being escorted out of southwestern Queensland.

The couple visited several places in Queensland, including Thargomindah, Cunnamulla, Charleville and Quilpie.

They will be included in the New South Wales COVID figures.

Deputy Prime Minister Steven Miles said pop-up vaccination clinics would operate in theme parks and surf lifesaving clubs over the coming long weekend.

Hubs operates in Movie World, Sea World, Dream World, Aussie World, Australia Zoo and Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

More than 20 surf lifeguard clubs would also have pop-up clinics.

Mr Miles said on Saturday that more than 28,000 people had a COVID vaccine dose, more than 13,500 of which were administered at clinics in more than 100 schools.

Miles said the number was close to record.

“There are going to be gangbusters,” Mr. Miles said, speaking in Redcliffe.

More than 8,000 tests were conducted across the state in the last 24 hours.
