Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the state doesn't have enough supply of the COVID-19 vaccine to meet the demand of a mass vaccination hub, similiar to one planned by New South Wales.

It was announced yesterday that Sydney Olympic Park would be used to administer up to 60,000 jabs a week, handling half of the entire state's COVID-19 vaccines.

Ms Palaszczuk said Queenslanders were most likely to get their vaccines from GP clinics and pharmacies, rather than at a purpose-build centre.
