Covid-19: Walk in jabs for over-65s at Bermuda College
Walk-in vaccinations for seniors will be launched today at the Bermuda College clinic.
The jab against the coronavirus will be offered to people aged 65 or older from 3pm to 6.45pm until next Tuesday.
A health ministry spokeswoman said: “This walk-in service is being piloted to get as many residents over the age of 65 vaccinated by removing the barrier of technology.
“We urge all persons who have not yet been vaccinated to take advantage of this opportunity.”
The last walk-in vaccinations will be taken at 6.45pm.
Appointments will be given for the next available opening on the schedule after that time.
The Ministry of Health said registration before arrival at this site would speed up the process.
But the spokeswoman added people unable to register online who are 65 or over could still walk in at the Bermuda College Vaccination Centre.
Photo identification such as a driver’s licence is required.
The Bermuda Hospitals Board vaccination centre at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital will not accepting walk-ins.
The announcement came as the island marked its first set of all-negative results for the coronavirus after several days with new cases.
The Ministry of Health reported no positive results out of the latest 258 tests.
There are 22 active cases of Covid-19, with no recoveries since Monday’s update.
The active cases are being monitored by public health officials and none are in hospital.
The seven-day average of the island’s real time reproduction number is below one, and Bermuda’s country status remained at “sporadic cases”.
