The Government’s “mass vaccination programme will end on March 31st,” Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, adding that after that, it will be available through physicians’ offices and participating pharmacies and “there will likely be a charge for this service.”
In releasing last night’s [Feb 10] test results, Minister Wilson said, “As a reminder, the Bermuda Government mass vaccination programme will end on March 31st. The Covid-19 vaccine is currently available for free, and first, second and booster doses will continue to be available at Pier 6 until March 31st, either by appointment or you can walk in.
“Following further considerations, the Booster is now being offered to those who have had their second dose 5 months prior. Those that this applies to are now permitted to book their booster appointment.
“Starting on Monday February 14th, Pier 6 hours of operation are 2 – 6 pm on weekdays and 10 am – 2 pm on Saturdays.
“After March 31st, the Covid-19 vaccine will be available through physicians’ offices, as well as participating pharmacies. However, there will likely be a charge for this service.”
The mass vaccination programme began in January 2021, and as of February 5th, 2022, Bermuda has administered a total of 123,082 vaccinations and 73.1% of the population has received one dose, 71.9% have had two doses, and 69.4% of those eligible for a booster have received it.
