Bermuda’s current WHO country status remains “Sporadic Cases”.

Minister of Health, Kim Wilson, JP, MP, said, “The vaccination centre at the Bermuda College has been closed. However, the KEMH Vaccination Centre will remain open Monday to Friday from 4 pm until 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8 am until 12 noon for appointments and walk-ins.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many volunteers and staff who worked incredibly hard to stand up the vaccination centres, first at the Police Recreation Club and, later, at the Bermuda College. There is no doubt that Bermuda would not be where it is today with 64% of the population vaccinated if it were not for the efforts of this hard-working community of doctors, dentists, vets, nurses, EMTs, pharmacists, and call centre and administrative assistants – thank you.”
