More Covid Vaccine Clinics Arranged

More coronavirus vaccine clinics have been arranged in Jersey to get more children jabbed before they return to school next month.

They're all taking place at Les Quennevais Sports Centre between Friday 12 August and Saturday 27 August:

  • Friday 12 August: 12:30pm - 5:30pm.
  • Saturday 13 August: 9am - 3pm.
  • Friday 19 August: 12:30pm - 5:30pm.
  • Saturday 20 August: 9am - 3pm.
  • Friday 26 August: 12:30pm - 5:30pm.
  • Saturday 27 August: 9am - 3pm.

All islanders aged 5 and over who are eligible for another vaccine can attend.

Some rock-up clinics were also held at the start of last month to try and boost take-up ahead of the autumn and winter months.

58% of 12 to 15-year-olds in Jersey have had their first vaccine dose, according to the latest government statistics.

5 to 11 year olds are being offered two child doses of the coronavirus vaccine, after it was recommended by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
