73,702 Total Covid-19 Vaccinations Given

June 8, 2021 | 10 Comments

As of June 5th, there have been a total of 73,702 vaccinations given, with 53.8% of the population having received two doses thus far.

A Government spokesperson said, “Bermuda has completed the twenty-first full week of vaccinations. Since January 11th, we have administered a total of 73,702 vaccinations – a figure that rises to 74,852 if you include vaccinations on Sunday, June 6th and Monday, June 7th as well!

“Of the 73,702 vaccinations given as of June 5th:

  • 52% are women, and,
  • 48% are men.

“80.2% of all residents over the age of 65 have had at least one vaccination, and 75.2% are fully immunized. To date, 61.3% of the population has been vaccinated [1 dose], and 53.8% of the population has been immunized [2 doses].”

“Covid-19 cases are down in Bermuda, thanks in part to our aggressive testing and vaccine programme. As well, the United States Centres for Disease Control today upgraded Bermuda’s Covid-19 risk rating,” said Minister of Health Kim Wilson.

“Bermuda is now classed as Level 2, moderate, up from Level 4, very high in a travel advisory on the organisation’s website. However, we must  continue to be vigilant to avoid any additional outbreaks.”

“Our last first dose vaccines were administered today, and the response was good. I encourage anyone who wants to be vaccinated to please register your interest at https://vaccine.resqwest.com/web/. We will order more vaccines if we have the need.”

“For anyone who is homebound and wants to get vaccinated, a team from the Bermuda College vaccination centre is available to administer the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine. They will also visit those homebound persons requiring second doses up to June 30th.”

“Anyone who feels they need a home visit for the Covid-19 vaccine can contact the Hotline at 444-2498 and select Option #2, or email vaccine@gov.bm, and the team will arrange a visit.”

      I’ve said this multiple times that the numbers don’t add up. Also our population is 62,000 not 65,000 anymore, a lot have left

    • hmm says:

      That equals 36,851 fully vaccinated with 2 shots per person.

      Hi Fisherman,

      Each person requires two doses.

      65,000 population.

      If you want 100% vaccination on the island they would need:

      130,000 vaccines to be administered.

      Best,

      Mephisto

      Remember you had 2 jabs each ? – or perhaps not by the looks of your comment !

    • Stephanie says:

      You need two shots to be fully vaccinated so if they had given two shots to everyone then the total be 74,852 shots divided by 2 = 37,426 people

      But not everyone has received their second dose so there are less than 37,426 people who are fully vaccinated

    • TR says:

      No, the 70+,+++ are total vaccinations given so that would be with some getting 2 and some getting 1.

      Don’t quit your day job.

    Is it the math you have trouble with or the comprehension?
