Minister of Health, Kim Wilson, emphasises the importance of vaccination: “Influenza and COVID-19 can lead to symptoms ranging from mild to severe, potentially resulting in hospitalisation or death, particularly among high-risk groups like the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. The Ministry of Health strongly recommends that eligible individuals get vaccinated. As always, remember that all Bermuda residents have a role in preventing the spread of respiratory infections through public health and hygiene measures such as handwashing, mask wearing, staying home when sick, and getting vaccinated.”
