In releasing tonight’s test results, Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, “Bermuda received 11,700 Covid-19 vaccine doses from the UK last night. These doses will be used to support the third dose/booster programme which starts on 9 October.
“Seniors in rest homes and staff will be amongst the first to receive the booster, together with people who are immunosuppressed. Immunosuppressed are those with underlying conditions that make them highly at risk of severe illness if they were to contract Covid-19. Anyone in a rest home who is not immunized can receive the vaccine during the booster programme.”
