Today Premier David Burt, Deputy Premier and Minister of Home Affairs Walter Roban, and the Minister of Finance Curtis Dickinson visited the Mobile Vaccination Centre at National Sports Centre in Devonshire.
“Some 156 people showed up to get the COVID-19 vaccine. This brings to 627 the number of people who have used the mobile vaccination service,” the Government said.
“In a show of appreciation, the Premier, Deputy Premier, and Minister of Finance delivered flowers to mothers who were being vaccinated. The flowers were donated by Zurich International and Chubb and were provided by GiMi, Demco Florist and El Shaddai. Local DJ Juggling Jason played music for the attendees.”

I extend my thanks to all the nurses, doctors and volunteers who participated in today’s Close to Home Mobile Vaccination Programme. I appreciate their hard work and on-going contributions to Bermuda.”
