“The total boosters administered to date is approximately 2000,” Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, explaining that the “programme is now administering approximately 300 person per day per centre. ”
Speaking at last night’s [Oct 20] press conference, Minister Wilson said, “The booster programme successfully started on the Saturday 9th of October at the rest homes and subsequently started at the BHB vaccine centre and the National Sports Centre on the 10th and 13th October respectively.
“The BHB vaccine centre launched the booster programme by servicing the immunosuppressed for its first 2 days of opening, however, the centre is now open to those 65 and over. The National Sports Centre’s vaccine programme launched by servicing the 65 year olds and over and pregnant women and continues to maintain services for that cohort.
“The next phase of the booster programme will be for the healthcare workers and it is anticipated this group will be able to receive boosters in approximately four weeks based on the currant rate of boosters.
“The programme is now administering approximately 300 person per day per centre. The total boosters administered to date is approximately 2000 which is an amazing achievement and a testament that the public continues to want to play their part in having a safe environment for everyone.
“As a reminder if you are 65 and over or you are a pregnant women who has had a second dose at least six months prior you are eligible to make an appointment. To book your own appointment please visit the government website link gov.bm and select ‘Book a Booster Vaccine Appointment’.”
