“Living safely with Covid requires us to look out for our safety and to care about the safety of others, especially our vulnerable persons.
“There are far too many positive cases in our community, and we have increased hospitalisations. It also saddens me that there are coronavirus related deaths every week. Please practice healthy behaviours and consider the safety of yourself and others.
“As a reminder, the fourth dose of Covid-19 vaccine is now available for persons who had their third dose more than five months ago and are immunosuppressing conditions, older than 65 or residents of residential care homes.
“The fourth dose booster will be available by appointment at Pier 6 on March 24 and March 25, 2022, then walk-ins from Monday, March 28, to March 31, 2022, between 12 noon and 5.30 pm.
“Anyone wishing a booster vaccine can book an appointment on www.gov.bm by selecting “Book a Booster Vaccine Appointment.” They may also call the Vaccination Hotline at 444-2498 [option #2] or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Please remember that living safely with Covid means we must continue to follow public health guidance. Keep a safe distance from others in public, wear a mask, and avoid closed spaces, crowded places and close contact settings. Practice good hand hygiene, have proper ventilation indoors, take an at-home antigen test before going to events and socialising, and get vaccinated and boosted.”
