The island will follow the latest advice from the UK’s JCVI stating that an additional booster vaccine be offered to those most vulnerable to maintain their protection against severe Covid.
This extra dose should be offered no earlier than 24 weeks after their initial booster dose of the vaccine and timings will be confirmed when final guidance is published. This includes:
- All residents in an older adults care home
- All adults aged 75+
- All those aged 12+ who are immunosuppressed
Further info on the rollout will be provided soon and people are asked not to contact 111 in the meantime.
