From Saturday 2 July, Islanders aged 5 and over will be able to get any dose of their COVID-19 vaccine at selected parish halls around the Island as the Government's rock-up clinics return.
Islanders will also be able to ask healthcare staff any questions they may have about the vaccine.
Parish Halls that will be running these rock-up sessions include:
- St Helier- Saturday 2 July 8:30am-3:30pm
- St Peter- Tuesday 5 July 11:30am-6:30pm
- St John- Wednesday 6 July 11:30am-6:30pm
- St Saviour- Thursday 7 July 11:30am-6:30pm
- Grouville- Friday 8 July 11:30am-6:30pm
- St Helier- Saturday 9 July 8:30am-3:30pm
The Vaccination Centre at Fort Regent is still available for Islanders to receive a vaccine. Anyone that wants to book their appointment can do so online at www.gov.je/vaccine or by calling the Coronavirus Helpline on 0800 735 5566.
The locations and timings have made the clinics more accessible for school age children, particularly for those aged 5-11 who are eligible for their second doses providing 12 weeks have passed since their first dose. This follows the latest advice from the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
Islanders who are planning on travelling abroad this summer are reminded that some places need proof of COVID status, which may include vaccination records.
Vaccination entry requirements can differ from Jersey's fully vaccinated status, those who have not completed their vaccination schedule may wish to use the rock-up clinics as another opportunity to avoid any potential problems at borders during their travel.
Head of the Vaccination Programme, Emma Baker, said: "We are pleased that we are able to offer Islanders to rock-up for their vaccine once again. We saw how popular they were initially, and it is encouraging to see Islanders young and old taking the opportunity to protect themselves and others.
"Keeping up to date with your vaccine schedule is important and, in some countries, it is a requirement to travel. I urge those over the age of 5 who haven't yet had their first COVID-19 vaccine or are due a second or third dose to take advantage of these rock-up clinics and give yourself the best protection over the summer. Your vaccine is waiting for you."
