The Minister of Health, the Hon Kim N Wilson, is pleased with how the vaccination programme is progressing. Minister Wilson said: “We are delighted with the vaccine registrations to date and the number of residents interested in getting the vaccine. However, I would remind the public that we are not taking walk-ins; the COVID vaccination is by appointment only. When you submit your on-line registration form, you will receive an auto-generated submission receipt. Your submission will be kept on file, and you will be contacted as appointments become available. I appreciate everyone’s patience as we work through the thousands of registrations and prioritise our Phase 1A vaccine recipients.”
