Additional appointments for the Covid-19 vaccine boosters have been added for Pier 6 in Hamilton, the Ministry had advised.
A Government spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Health is advising that additional appointments for vaccine boosters have been added for Pier 6. To book a booster appointment, visit www.gov.bm.
“The Ministry notes that there are a limited amount of appointments and will be looking to increase the opportunity for booster doses over the next month.”
The Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, “If your second vaccine dose was more than 6 months ago and you are 18 years old or older, please go online to book your booster. Persons who are 65 years or older do not need an appointment; those individuals can just walk in to Pier 6.”
“Lastly, each of us has a role to play in stopping the spread. Continue to wear a mask indoors and outdoors if you cannot physical distance, practice good hand hygiene, maintain physical distance and download the WeHealth Bermuda app.”
This follows after the Government recently announced that as of January 15th, “all vaccinated persons will require a booster in order to receive a renewed SafeKey.”
The Government said, “Given the mutations associated with Omicron and the passage of time which can impact the efficacy of the vaccine, as of 15 January 2022, all vaccinated persons will require a booster in order to receive a renewed SafeKey. You are eligible for a booster if your second jab was more than six months ago.
