COVID-19 vaccination clinics
The KEMH is pleased to inform the public that they will be running more ‘by appointment only’ COVID-19 vaccination clinics in the KEMH. Starting at 10.30am, the clinics will be on:
Saturday 28 May
Saturday 4 June
Saturday 11 June
These clinics is for anyone aged over 16 who has not yet received either one of their first two primary doses or subsequent first booster dose and for anyone aged over 60 who has not yet received their second booster dose.
Your second primary dose must be no less than 28 days after your first dose; for a first booster dose you need to have had your last vaccination at least three months ago while it is recommended to wait 5 – 6 months between first and second boosters. If you have recently recovered from COVID-19 you must wait at least four weeks before having your vaccine.
This clinic is by appointment only; if you would like to attend then please call 28000. If this is your first dose then please let the receptionist know.
The KEMH plans to offer patients aged between 45 – 59 a second booster dose in July and more information on this will be provided soon. However, should there be any patients in that age group who will not be in the Islands at that time, and would like a second booster dose then please book for one of the Saturday clinics.
Before attending any of these clinics, please undertake a Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test. Please do not attend if you test positive for COVID-19 or have flu like symptoms.
