7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Dr Jeannette Young rejects claims Queensland has highest rates of vaccine hesitancy | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

Dr Jeannette Young has rejected claims Queensland has the highest rates of vaccine hesitancy in the country, as the state records further cases linked to the Delta COVID strain.

The state’s Chief Health Officer says over-60s, who are most at risk from COVID, should get vaccinated with AstraZeneca urgently if they have not already done so, with under-60s urged to speak to their GP for further advice.

“I don’t believe we do have the highest vaccine hesitancy. What I want to see is anyone who is 60 years of age or older immediately goes and gets vaccinated.”
