The Ministry of Health is reminding the public that the Police Recreation Club is no longer a vaccination centre.

“The Bermuda College Campus site opened today, and the hours of operation are from 8 am to 8 pm in the Student Hall,” said Minister of Health, Kim Wilson.

“If you are eligible for the COVID vaccination, please register your interest so that you can get an appointment. Persons interested in getting the vaccine should go to https://forms.gov.bm/covidvaccine.

“If sufficient people in the Island are vaccinated, the virus is less able to spread as the number of susceptible people is low. This means that you are able to not only protect yourself but also help protect the people you interact with, especially those in higher risk groups who are at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Those individuals in higher-risk groups include the elderly and those who are extremely clinically vulnerable. If you have any questions about your vulnerability, please talk with your primary care physician.”
