Mothers’ Day treat at vaccination centre

Mothers’ Day surprise: David Burt, the Premier, hands out flowers to moms at a pop up vaccination centre (Photograph supplied)

Mothers’ Day flowers were on Saturday handed out at a vaccination centre by top politicians.

David Burt, the Premier, Walter Roban, the home affairs minister and Curtis Dickinson, the finance minister gave the flowers away at the mobile vaccination clinic at the National Sports Centre in Devonshire.

Mr Burt thanked everyone who had turned up to get the jab, despite rain showers.

He added: “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 ongoing contributions to Bermuda.”

Mr Burt said: “To all the mothers, especially my mother, my wife and my sister, I wish you all a happy Mother’s Day tomorrow.”

About 150 people used the station today, which brought the total number of people who have used the mobile clinics to 627. The flowers were donated by insurance giants Zurich International and Chubb.

The blooms were supplied by GiMi, Demco and El Shaddai and DJ Juggling Jason played music for the attendees.

The “Close to Home” mobile vaccination programme continues next week from 10am to 2pm at Shelly Bay MarketPlace, Hamilton Parish on Tuesday, TN Tatem Middle School, Warwick on Thursday and Victor Scott Primary School, Pembroke on Sunday.

A free minibus service is available for anyone who needs a ride to vaccination centres, including Bermuda College.
