Speaking at the latest COVID briefing on Tuesday (April 6), the Minister said: “From January 11 to April 3, 2021, Bermuda has administered a total of 41,152 vaccinations – a figure that rises to 42,038 if you include yesterday’s (April 6) vaccinations as well! – all of which is very good news and ranks us as 8th in the world for vaccinations.
“Of the 41,152 vaccinations administered for the period we are reporting on, which ends April 3rd; 54 percent are women, and, 46 percent are men.
“Bermuda’s goal of ‘herd immunity’ will be achieved when 70 percent of the population (64,054) has been immunised.
“To date, 37 percent of the population has been vaccinated (with 1 dose), and 27 percent of the population has been immunised (with 2 doses).”
The breakdown on the 3,364 vaccinations administered during the week of March 28 – April 3rd is as follows:
