Calling GP volunteers for pop-up COVID vaccine clinics for people who are homeless

AMA Queensland is delighted to support The VacSeen Project, a local charitable organisation that runs GP-led pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics for people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage around South East Queensland.

Recently, the VacSeen Project has delivered more than 300 COVID-19 vaccines and they are keen to keep responding to this community need.

The next step is to expand their clinics around Queensland in collaboration with Orange Sky.

But they need your help!
