Bermuda’s new COVID Vaccination Centre at the Bermuda College Campus, Student Hall on South Shore in Paget will open on Monday, 15 February.

The Vaccination Centre at the Police Recreation Club is closing on Saturday 13 February. If you are scheduled for the second dose appointment at the Prospect Police Club after Saturday, please report to the Bermuda College at the time and day scheduled.

“The Bermuda College Campus site will have up to ten vaccination stations vs the six at the Police Recreation Club. This will allow us to run the site for longer hours, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., on more days if we must, with the necessary observation space,” explained Minister of Health, Kim Wilson.

“I extend our sincere appreciation to the Police Recreation Club for the use of their facility. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to use this location as our first vaccine centre. It was a good location and a tremendous help to our vaccine programme. I urge those people who intend to get vaccinated and are eligible to register your interest now. The COVID-19 vaccination is an essential tool to help stop the pandemic.“

“I also want to encourage everyone to get tested so that you know your status. Although vaccines are widely being administered in Bermuda and worldwide, the pandemic will not be over for many months. Get tested and if you are eligible, register to get vaccinated now. Persons interested in getting the vaccine should go to https://forms.gov.bm/covidvaccine.”
