Clinic days held at Chester Street hub

More than 900 healthcare workers, from across the Island, received a Covid-19 booster vaccine over the weekend.

Clinics were held at the Chester Street hub in Douglas on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The staff are the first in line for the additional jabs as they were at the start of the Covid-19 vaccination roll out earlier this year.

Sandie Hannay, who was the first on-Island to receive a vaccine dose, was among the first on Friday afternoon to get her third dose - nine months after her initial injection.

In addition government says adults over 70, and those who are clinically vulnerable, will be contacted by their GP or 111 this week to book in to receive their booster jab.
