Queensland has recorded one new community case of COVID-19 connected to a cluster south of Brisbane as the state prepares to welcome walk-ins to its vaccination hubs.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the new case was a student at St Thomas More College in Sunnybank and had been in home quarantine during their infectious period.
"I want to thank all of the families that are still doing home quarantine, they are keeping Queenslanders safe," she told parliament on Thursday.
The new case comes as close contacts in home quarantine are subject to a new check-in system which Health Minister Yvette D'Ath said enables "real-time monitoring and compliance".
The system sends random messages at least once a day, which include a hyperlink that people must open and respond to within 10 minutes.
"It specifically allows authorities to identify if anybody is away from their approved residences," Ms D'Ath said on Thursday.
"Potential breaches will be assessed by police to identify whether further action is required, including fines and a direction to go into hotel quarantine at their own cost."
Ms D'Ath said the system also enables authorities to check on the welfare of those in home quarantine, "which ccan be a challenging time for individuals and families".
It is seen as a progression from text messages, phone calls and random inspections that "have long been the hallmarks of our home quarantine system", Ms D'Ath said.
Meanwhile, the state is preparing for a major vaccination drive by welcoming walk-ins to Queensland Heath hubs this weekend.
As well as Pfizer being offered in state clinics to those over 60, Ms Palaszczuk said the federal government has seen the value and will make the vaccine available to the age group via their GPs.
"People told me they wanted a choice and now they have it," she said.
The state will also operate pop up vaccination clinics at NRL games in regional Queensland on Friday night and Saturday.
The premier said health and emergency services workers had fought the pandemic "long and hard" as she urged residents across the state to get the jab.
"We owe it to them to get vaccinated so they are not overwhelmed when the next wave arrives," she said.
"I call on on every Queenslander over the age of 12 to do it for their families, do it for their communities, defend the freedoms that we now all enjoy and join the jab army."
A total of 57.63 per cent of Queenslanders have had their first jab, with 39.35 per cent fully vaccinated.
The state recorded an additional two cases in hotel quarantine.
