KEMH vaccination programme update

Following the first two days of the Falkland Islands vaccination programme, 663 eligible people have now received their first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

517 vaccines were administered in the Stanley Vaccination Centre (FIDF Hall), 44 were delivered across Camp and the Outer Islands, and 48 were provided by the Community Support Team.

Plans have been proceeding well, with weather conditions improving throughout today, enabling the travelling vaccine part of the programme to proceed slightly later than originally scheduled.

More information will be provided on the numbers vaccinated towards the end of the week.
