Head of the Vaccination Programme, Becky Sherrington, said: "The statistics this week show once again how well vaccination uptake is and how we are in a strong position for the majority of adults to have been fully vaccinated by mid-August. The fact that 92% of people 40 and over have had at least one dose, and many having had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, is fantastic.
"Additionally, more than four in five Islanders aged 30 and over have received at least one dose of the vaccine and within just over one week, the Vaccination Centre has seen many young Islanders aged 18 and over attending to get their first doses. Islanders who are getting vaccinated are affording themselves and the community protection against COVID-19 and I'd like to thank those Islanders time and time again for their continued support towards the Vaccination Programme."
