Video: BA Flight Arrives With More Vaccines

January 29, 2021

The British Airways flight arrived at around 6.00pm this evening [Jan 29] — after being delayed by 24 hours due to the high winds yesterday — with the flight reportedly carrying 19,500 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.

The first shipment of 9,750 doses arrived on the Island earlier this month, and the first vaccinations took place on January 11th, and the Government has said their goal is to “have 19,000 residents administered two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine by the end of March.”

The Government opened a second vaccination clinic at KEMH, which follows the opening of the first clinic at Police Club in Prospect, saying the second location will “allow the Ministry to dramatically increase the number of vaccines we are able to administer on a daily basis.”

In releasing the test results earlier today, Health Minister Kim Wilson said, “The next batch of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine doses arrive in Bermuda today, and as more doses of the vaccine arrive and become available, we will be moving to the next phases of the National Allocation Strategy. As we transition through the phases, there may be changes to the protocols. The Ministry of Health will communicate any changes that may occur.”

“Persons interested in getting the vaccine should go to: Filling out this form should take approximately two minutes, and it is important to note that the information you enter will be kept private.”

“Again, I will remind everyone that registering your interest does not guarantee you an appointment at this time. Supplies of the initial delivery of the vaccine are limited and must be allocated based on medical need. All submissions will be reviewed by our medical personnel and prioritised based on their assessments. Your submission will be kept on file, and you will be contacted as appointments become available.”

    Once again….thank you UK.

    Many small Caribbean nations have no vaccines at all.

    But, we don’t like the UK. They enslaved and colonised us for 400 years.
    After they help us to discriminate against the LGBT’s, we’ll cut them loose and become independent.

      You are so full of BS! Independence? Like how? What do we have that we can self sustain and influence others? A big fat nothing troll!

    What about long term non residents, they need to have vaccines as they live here too

    There is controversy regarding Covid 19 vaccines everywhere around the globe. I do not think this will be going away any time soon.
