Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the centre would ramp up to 1500 vaccinations per day at its peak.

She visited the centre today.

"The large sporting venue will host up to 30 vaccination stations, giving Beenleigh and Logan residents more opportunity to get their vaccine," Ms Palaszczuk said.

"I'd like to thank all involved including Queensland Health and Logan City Council for their hard work in getting this ready for this weekend.

"And I'd also like to thank the people of Logan and Beenleigh who have been coming out in force to be vaccinated, keeping the community safe."

It comes as the state announced good news for essential workers and students in the early stages of re-establishing the border bubble between NSW and Queensland.

From 1am on Monday, Queensland has agreed that border crossings can resume for those two groups, as long as they are coming from the NSW local government areas whose stay at home orders will lift at 12.01am tomorrow.

The Australian Medical Association of Queensland said it was a great relief that all medical support workers were now classed as essential workers and would soon be able to resume their important work.

"When the Queensland government tightened its essential worker definition ... doctors and nurses could still cross the border but orderlies, cleaners, caterers and administrative staff were shut out," president Chris Perry said.

"This created chaos in hospitals and health care services in the Coolangatta-Tweed Heads region.

The latest hub opens as another in Logan continues to vaccinate thousands of people every day.

"The Logan Entertainment Centre Vaccination Hub has delivered well over 50,000 jabs since it opened in mid-July and we know that opening this additional centre at Mount Warren Park is important to keep that momentum going," Ms Palaszczuk said.
