Fourth vaccine shot approved in Bermuda

Just how many do people need? But they work because, “Follow the science”. Yes “follow the science” right into a ditch because the actual numbers say, the vaccines don’t work to stop Covid-19. Also, with case numbers so low, what a time in Bermuda to grant permission for a fourth shot. Crazy.

The go-ahead for people to get a fourth dose of the Covid-19 vaccine was given tonight.

The fourth dose vaccine booster shot in Bermuda is to be targeted at the vulnerable, including people aged over 65, rest home residents and anyone with suppressed immune systems.

Anyone who had a third dose more than five months ago can qualify for the extra dose.

The jab will be available by appointment at Pier 6 in Hamilton tomorrow and Friday and will open up to then walk-ins next week.

Officials said the Department of Health would work with care homes to ensure the fourth dose booster was available in the sector.

Ayo Oyinloye, the Chief Medical Officer, said he recommended a fourth shot for older people and for those at higher risk.

He said: “Data from around the world has shown that a fourth dose booster is safe and, for our vulnerable population, an additional Covid vaccine dose may help boost antibody levels and protect against severe illness.

“This is particularly important as other public health measures are being relaxed.”

Dr Oyinloye told the public: “If you have questions about the vaccine or have not been vaccinated, speak to your doctor.”

Kim Wilson, the Minister of Health, added: “We are in the last week of our free mass vaccination programme and I am pleased that the fourth dose booster is available to those who need it.

I strongly urge everyone eligible for the fourth dose booster to please get it as soon as possible.“
