Booster programme continues for persons 50 and over

The Covid-19 vaccination clinic will continue to administer booster shots to persons age 50 and over, the clinically vulnerable and healthcare workers. The third dose of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine must be administered at least six months after the second dose. Persons eligible to receive their booster should bring along their vaccination card or digital certificate showing proof of their second dose and a government issued photo ID.
