Island to receive 800 Moderna vaccine doses in April

Jabs likely to be administered at Chester St hub

The Island is set to receive 800 doses of the Moderna vaccine this month.

Government has confirmed the position after the UK started the rollout of the jab.

A batch of 300 doses is already available, however a further 500 are expected around 20 April.

Government says it's waiting for the full batch of 800 to be delivered to the Isle of Man altogether.

It is also waiting for a 'specific piece of documentation' before using the latest vaccine 'almost immediately', with most likely go through the Chester Street hub facility.
