Pop-up clinic for Covid-19 booster shots today
St John Ambulance Brigade is holding its second pop-up clinic for the Covid-19 booster shot today from 9am to 1pm.
The Brigade is offering the Moderna bivalent Covid-19 shot to all essential and health workers and anyone aged over 50.
The bivalent booster is considered to be more effective against recent Omicron variants of Covid-19, which have proven to be more resistant to the earlier vaccines.
“As we continue to live safely with COVID-19, the most effective shield we have at our disposal is the updated booster shot,” said Kim Wilson, the Minister of Health.
The location is at 21 Point Finger Road, Paget, DV04 (next to Charities House) and is open until 1 pm.
The vaccine will be offered at no charge. However, donations to the St John’s Ambulance would be greatly appreciated.
Eligibility for COVID-19 Moderna Booster:
1.You must have completed your primary series (2 doses) of the COVID-19 vaccine.
2.Your last dose of the Covid-19 vaccine &/or a booster dose must be at least five months prior.
3.You must be 50 years, and over or for people aged 18 – 49, you must be a health care worker, essential worker, or immunocompromised.
