There will be more opportunity for people living in the broader Gladstone region to get their COVID jab.

A mobile vaccination van will be road tripping across the Wide Bay over the next few weeks offering the Pfizer vaccine.

Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service Vaccine Lead Fiona Sewell says the first stop is Agnes Water on Monday.

"We will be there from the 6th to 8th of September at the Agnes Water Community Hall area parked in our van, and we will be vaccinating away as many people as we possibly can on the day," Ms Sewell says.

"The aim is to take the van further out and go up to Lowmead and then even to Baffle Creek and Rosedale if we can.

"We are still confirming those locations at the moment but that's our plan for the 9th of September."

The van is set to stop at the Agnes Water Community Centre on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week (Sept 6-8).
