Director of Public Health, Professor Peter Bradley, said: “We are in a position where we can
continue winding down our vaccination programmes and I am pleased that we have been
able to make this decision.
“Since the start of the initial vaccine programme in 2020, our hardworking teams have
administered over 270,000 vaccines. I would like to thank everyone across the teams for
their hard work and the public for their continued support. Our priority is the health and
safety of Islanders and I want to reassure everyone that we will continue to offer support if
they are unwell or concerned about COVID-19.
“I encourage those who haven’t yet had their spring booster if eligible, or their first and
second doses, to do so before the offer is withdrawn.”
