“Of the 123,728 vaccinations given as of February 12, 2022:

“86.9% of all residents over the age of 65 years have had at least one vaccination, and 85.6% are fully immunized.
“To date, 73.2% of the population has been vaccinated [1 dose], and 71.9% of the population has been immunized [2 doses].
“Additionally, 70.4% of those eligible for a booster have received their booster.”
“There are still quite a few people who are eligible for a booster but have not gone to get it,” said Minister of Health, Kim Wilson.
“If you are eligible for the booster, please get it as soon as possible. The booster improves your chances of not catching the virus, or if you contract the virus, your symptoms will most likely be mild. There is just over a month left before our free mass vaccination programme ends.”
