The King Edward VII Memorial Hospital began its island-wide vaccination programme on Monday 8 February 2021. Since this time, 94% of people in the Islands have received two doses of the vaccination and, as of November 2021, the hospital is beginning to provide booster doses for adults aged 18 and over - with 1,250 administered to date. We are following the JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) guidelines in order to design and deliver our vaccination programme, which means it is liable to change as new variants emerge and new guidance is issued. Please ensure you check this website regularly for the latest information on the KEMH vaccination programme.
The government continues to ask everyone to ensure that they are registered with KEMH. Even if you have not required medical attention recently, it’s crucial that KEMH has up-to-date information on everyone living in the Islands, so that detailed plans can be developed.
Why is it important to be registered?
- Over time the hospital can develop a good understanding of your healthcare needs
- KEMH can help ensure you stay up to date with your vaccinations and vital screening
- You can access health and wellbeing support, such as advice on diet and smoking
