It will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., but on Thursdays it will operate until 7:30 p.m.
A total of 16,152 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were administered at the clinic between early September and October 10.
Cairns MP Michael Healy said health services work where people live, work and play.
“Above [these options]you can still visit the Queensland health centers at Smithfield (James Cook University) or the Cairns South Health Facility, âhe said.
“[You can also] see your local GP or community pharmacy – there are many options for getting vaccinated now.
âThe more people there are vaccinated in our area, the faster we can get back to normal. “
