The first vaccination clinics are being held later this week for Manxies aged 16 and 17 to receive a Covid jab.
The clinics will be open for those who want the Pfizer vaccine which the JCVI has recommended giving to the age group:
- Saturday August 21 11am – 3pm
- Tuesday August 24 2.30pm – 4pm
Teens wanting to attend these clinics can arrive without a booking, but will need to ensure that they are already registered with 111 before attending. Anyone who arrives and isn’t pre-registered with 111 will have to wait and may not get jabbed that day.
Both clinics will be held at the Chester Street vaccination hub in Douglas and everyone who goes it asked to bring ID with them.
Teens aged 16 and 17 who live with an immunosuppressed person will be offered two jabs will be invited to register in the coming days.
Additionally, 17-year olds who are within three months of turning 18 will be offered an appointment for a second jab which will be confirmed soon after.
