Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has snapped at a 'rude' reporter who challenged her about her stance on Australia's Covid-19 vaccine rollout.
Ms Palaszczuk and the state's Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young drew controversy on Wednesday for contradicting Prime Minister Scott Morrison's advice by telling Queenslanders under the age of 40 not to get the AstraZeneca jab.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
The Queensland premier also claimed she had tried to secure extra Pfizer vaccines only to have her request turned down by the federal government.
On Thursday, she refused to answer Channel Seven reporter Bianca Stone after she referred to Ms Palaszczuk's comments as a 'publicity stunt'.

'You had this publicity stunt yesterday where you had your chief health officer get up and say "we've tried to get to get more Pfizer vaccines'," Ms Stone said.
Ms Palaszczuk interrupted the reporter to say 'sorry, I don’t know your name' before adding she hadn't seen the reporter before at one of her coronavirus press conferences.
'Bianca Stone,' the reporter said.
'Hi Bianca,' the premier replied.
Ms Stone said she was from Seven breakfast's show Sunrise, the show Ms Palaszczuk appeared on that morning.
'Well I'm not going to answer people being rude,' Ms Palaszczuk responded. 'You are being very rude. Anyone else with a question?'Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
