“The Bermuda Advisory Committee on Immunisation Practices [BACIP] met yesterday and agreed that booster vaccines be recommended for Bermuda,” Health Minister Kim Wilson said.
In releasing tonight’s test results, Health Minister Kim Wilson said, “This is great news. The recommended target groups for booster vaccines are persons who have immunosuppressing conditions and Chronic Health Diseases, health care workers, essential workers and persons older than 50.”
“Boosters will be an mRNA vaccine, such as the Pfizer, and will be given six months from the primary course of vaccination. The Ministry of Health is currently working out the delivery details.”
”BACIP provides guidance on the implementation of the Covid-19 vaccine. BACIP, in its evidence-based, advisory role, will provide transparency and credibility to the decision-making process and contribute to building public confidence in the vaccination program.”
