Queensland will not have a permanent Chief Health Officer from Monday after Dr Krispin Hajkowicz resigned from the post just days before he was due to take up the role.

Dr Hajkowicz was set to take over from Dr Jeannette Young after the incumbent chief health officer was confirmed as the state’s next governor.

The 45-year-old father of three, however, pulled out citing personal reasons.

The task of overseeing Queensland’s health will now fall to one of Dr Young’s deputies in a crucial period in the state’s lagging vaccination rollout.
