7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Queensland’s focus shifts to vaccine program despite recording new COVID-19 cases | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

Queensland has recorded two new COVID cases, along with an infected truck driver, but in a shift of strategy, there’s no suggestion of any restrictions or lockdown.

The focus has instead moved to the state’s vaccination program, with politicians blaming each other for lacklustre take-up rates.
