As of February 5th, Bermuda has administered a total of 123,082 vaccinations and 73.1% of the population has received one dose, 71.9% have had two doses, and 69.4% of those eligible for a booster have received it.
In releasing the latest test results, a Government spokesperson said, “Since January 11, 2021, Bermuda residents have received 123,082 vaccinations.
“Of the 123,082 vaccinations given as of February 5, 2022:
- 52% are women and,
- 48% are men
“87.1% of all residents over 65 years have had at least one vaccination, and 85.7% are fully immunised. To date, 73.1% of the population has been vaccinated [1 dose], and 71.9% of the population has been immunised [2 doses]. Additionally, 69.4% of those eligible have received their booster.”
Minister Wilson said, “As defined in the Quarantine [Covid -19] [Number 3] Order 2020, an immunised traveller is someone who has received the full course of a Covid-19 vaccine manufactured by Pfizer BioNTECH, AstraZeneca, Serum Institute of India, Jansen/Johnson & Johnson, Moderna or Sinopharm/BIBPSinovac.
“A full course of a vaccine means a Covid-19 vaccine administered according to the manufacturer’s recommendation or the recommendation of a stringent regulatory body recognised by the Ministry of Health, with at least 14 days from the date of the final dose of vaccination. For most vaccines, this means 14 days after the second dose, however for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine a full course is one dose.”
“As a reminder, the Bermuda Government mass vaccination programme will end on March 31st. The Covid-19 vaccine is currently available for free, and first, second and booster doses will continue to be available at Pier 6 until March 31st, either by appointment or you can walk in.
“Following further considerations, the booster is now being offered to those who have had their second dose 5 months prior. Those that this applies to are now permitted to book their booster appointment.
“Starting on Monday February 14th, Pier 6 hours of operation are 2 – 6 pm on weekdays and 10 am – 2 pm on Saturdays. After March 31st, the Covid-19 vaccine will be available through physicians’ offices, as well as participating pharmacies. However, there will likely be a charge for this service.”
