Emergency SMS Service

Palm Island Service update, 5th July 2021, 12.30pm

Please see below Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council update:

An extra ferry will be scheduled for Tuesday leaving at the usual time of 12 noon. This lets residents return and attend the vaccination clinic.

All residents are asked to be vaccinated prior to returning if possible, or attend the Primary Health Centre immediately upon their arrival and get vaccinated at the clinic on Palm between Tuesday and Thursday.

All other visitors are asked to respect the request of the Local Disaster Management Group to visit Palm only if they are vaccinated and travel is essential.

Everyone is welcome – once vaccinated.  This is at the request of the Palm Island Community. 

It is not compulsory, but as a matter of respect, we ask people to consider their need to travel until they are fully vaccinated.
