“71.2% of those eligible for a booster have received their booster, and 10.8% of those with a booster have received a second booster dose.”

The spokesperson said, “The vaccination clinic at the site of the former art gallery in Crisson’s at 71 Front Street, is now closed. Vaccinations and boosters are available through the Hamilton Health Centre, 67 Victoria Street.

“These vaccinations are by appointment only, with no walk-ins. You can get your 1st, 2nd or 3rd dose. Call 332-8906 for assistance in scheduling an appointment, or you can book online at www.gov.bm/vaccines.

“Pediatric doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine for children will end at the end of May. Parents who wish to have their child vaccinated should register their child on gov.bm/vaccines and then contact their paediatrician to register an interest in getting the vaccine.

“If your child does not have a paediatrician contact the Hamilton Health Centre on 332-8906 for assistance in scheduling an appointment. If you have questions, please contact vaccine@gov.bm or call 444-2498 and select Option #2.

“The Ministry of Health is also advising that fourth dose vaccinations are now showing on the vaccine certificates, and the appearance of the vaccine certificate will soon be changing to be more standardised with other jurisdictions. Changes to the vaccine certificate in the coming weeks include a readable QR code that Canada and the US airports can scan.”
