Park Ridge, Loganlea, Beaudesert and Mabel Park are among 50 state secondary schools set to benefit, with the doctor's clinics expected to be up and running by May 2022.

Logan MP Linus Power said he was pleased to support kids' health.

"Good education is even better with healthier students," he said.

"Every Queenslander deserves to be able to book a doctor's appointment when they need.

"This service will give local students access to timely healthcare at no cost to their families.

"This is an important investment. Delivering quality healthcare and education for all Queenslanders is what good Labor governments do best."

Education Minister Grace Grace said the initiative was part of the $100 million student wellbeing program announce at last election.

"Originally, the GP pilot program was designed to base GPs at 20 state secondary schools.

"We asked schools to register their interest to participate in this program and we were inundated with requests which is why we've expanded it to 50," she said.

Other schools included in the program were Beaudesert, Mabel Park, Loganlea and Park Ridge State High Schools.

The GP pilot program announcement comes as pharmacists started their school-based COVID vaccine program in St Monica's College in Cairns today.

National Pharmacy Guild of Australia president, Professor Trent Twomey, said schools would play an important role in making the vaccination program a success.

"This program will deliver thousands of Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to students across far north Queensland in the coming months," he said.

Mr Twomey hinted that a successful roll out could see it replicated in other regions.

The GP program hopes to have 464 additional psychologists and wellbeing professionals employed in schools over the next three years.
