As of January 22nd, Bermuda has administered a total of 120,535 vaccinations and 72.9% of the population has received one dose, 71.6% have had two doses, and 64.8% of those eligible for a booster have received it.

In releasing the latest test results, a Government spokesperson said, “Since January 11, 2021, Bermuda residents have received a total of 120,535 vaccinations.

“Of the 120,535 vaccinations given as of January 22, 2022:

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

“87.1% of all residents over the age of 65 years have had at least one vaccination and 85.8% are fully immunized.

“To date, 72.9% of the population has been vaccinated [1 dose], and 71.6% of the population has been immunized [2 doses].

“Additionally, 64.8% of those eligible for a booster have received their booster.

“As a reminder, vaccine booster appointments are available for Bermuda residents 12 and older who had their second dose more than 6 months ago.

  • For those 65 years and older it is by appointment or walk-in at Pier 6.
  • For those between 12 and 64 years it is by appointment only.

“I encourage anyone who wants to get vaccinated to register their interest on gov.bm/vaccines. And if you are eligible for your booster, please get it. Studies released by the CDC show the booster provides improved protection against severe illness and hospitalization due to COVID-19.

“Please note, that we are not currently administering fourth doses or second boosters.”

    The charts are not really relevant. What counts is how many are current right NOW with initial two shots &, if applicable, booster shots to keep them in date.

    How many think that just because they have had their two initial shots they are good to go. No they are not. The effectiveness decreases with time &, just like taking prescription drugs on a schedule, the booster is needed to keep the effectiveness up.

    “To date, 72.9% of the population has been vaccinated [1 dose], and 71.6% of the population has been immunized [2 doses].”

    I think we have hit a plateau at about 72% of the population

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      That is fine but how many who are past due for a booster have not had a booster?

      This makes them unvaxed as the first two shots are effective for a limited time.

      My suspicion is that we are well below the 72% vaxed rate again because people are not bothering to get the boosters. If they get sick they will be wondering why.

      • Question says:

        In the press conf on Jan 27 the Chief Medical Officer tried making a point about this, but it was incomprehensible. It included a table that, for example, purported to give effectiveness rates for Pfizer for omicron for 4-6 months after the third dose. This is for a variant that first hit Europe in the last week of November.
        So any ‘data’ about vaccine effectiveness after 4-6 months is based on the usual – pure guesses.

      • Toodle-oo says:

        I think you’re quite right . But the question that ought to be asked is why are so many people who were concerned enough to get the initial 2 jabs lagging on getting the booster ?
        Everyone in my circle has had the booster as well , btw .

  3. Joe Bloggs says:

    “Additionally, 64.8% of those eligible for a booster have received their booster.”

    I will put the difference between 72% and 64.8% down to the lack of ability to make an appointment for a booster in late December and early January.
