“Travellers scheduled for COVID testing at Perot Post Office must arrive at the time of their scheduled appointment,” reminded Minister of Health, Kim Wilson, JP, MP. “If you do not come at the appointment time, it creates delays and long lines. If you need to change your scheduled time, call the COVID 19 HOTLINE Center on 444-2498.”
“This week our Close to Home mobile vaccination programme will be at the following locations:
· Tuesday, June 8, Penno’s Wharf in St. George’s from 10 am until 2 pm,
· Thursday, June 10, at the Fairmont Southampton from 10 am until 2 pm
· Saturday, June 13, at TCD in Hamilton from 10 am until 2 pm.
“These neighbourhood sites are for people who have not yet registered for the COVID-19 vaccine, do not have access to the internet, and prefer to register in person or have additional questions about the COVID-19 vaccine. There will be doctors on site to answer any questions you have, and you don't need an appointment. You can just show up and roll up your sleeve.”
“We recommend the Close to Home mobile programme as an ideal opportunity to learn more for those people who want to hear about the COVID-19 vaccine from a trusted source. A free mini-bus service is available to take people from their homes to the mobile vaccination sites and back to their homes afterwards. Call 533-5903 between 10.00 am and 1.30 pm if you need a ride to one of the mobile vaccination sites.”
“Residents who have been immunized overseas and want to get a Bermuda Government Vaccine Certificate should email firstname.lastname@example.org. They must provide proof of their vaccination, including date(s), vaccine type and vaccination centre.”
“Bermuda’s progress in keeping our COVID-19 cases down is what will get us through the summer with fewer restrictions,” added Minister Wilson. “As we are cautiously re-opening, we must all act responsibly.”
“Each of us has a role to play in stopping the spread of the coronavirus. Follow Public Health guidelines, wear a mask, practice good hand hygiene, maintain physical distance and download the WeHealthBermuda app. Do the research, talk with your doctor and make an informed decision about getting the COVID-19 vaccine.”
