Meanwhile, Health Minister Kim Wilson thanked the Summerhaven Residential Home, for donating two wheelchairs for use at the Bermuda College vaccination centre.

I am truly grateful for the wheelchairs provided by Summerhaven, for those attending the vaccination centre requiring wheelchair assistance,” said Minister of Health, Kim Wilson, JP, MP. “Their kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated,” said Ms Wilson.

The Bermuda College vaccination centre will accept walk-ins again on Tuesday, March 16, for those persons 65 years and older who are unable to register for the vaccination on line.  

“We will also accept walk-ins for those persons 50 or older. However, again, please note that priority will be given to those 65 and older. Walk-in appointments are from 3 pm to 6:45 pm, and we do insist that you do not attend before 3pm,” she added.

Please remember that if you have travelled, you cannot get your first or second dose of the vaccine until after your 14-day negative COVID test result. When you go for your vaccination, please wear clothing that makes it easy to access your upper arm. The COVID-19 vaccine is only available to Bermuda Residents and you will be required to show proof of residency at your appointment.”
