A mobile vaccination centre at the Transport Control Department in Pembroke delivered the coronavirus vaccine to 189 people who got their first dose today.

They attended TCD on North Street between 10am and 2pm, where David Burt, the Premier, paid a visit.

It followed 40 people getting the jab at launch of the drive- and walk-through programme on Tuesday at Penno’s Wharf, St George’s, and 74 first doses given on Thursday at the Fairmont Southampton.

Mr Burt attended TCD with Walter Roban, the Deputy Premier, and government MPs Michael Weeks and Ianthia Simmons-Wade.

Thanking all those who took part, along with area MPs who informed their constituents of the offer, Mr Burt said that “300 first doses this week is a great start”.

“Every person vaccinated moves Bermuda closer to community protection from the coronavirus which will allow Bermuda to move beyond the pandemic.”

Mr Burt said attendance had exceeded expectations, with more doses brought to TCD.

He added: “For various reasons, persons may not be able to register online or travel to Bermuda College or King Edward Hospital.”

Mr Burt advised the public: “Do the research, talk with your doctor and make an informed decision about getting the Covid-19 vaccine.”

The programme will move to the Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre in St David’s on Tuesday, Sandy Secondary Middle School on Thursday and the National Sports Centre in Devonshire next Sunday.
