Vaccination Programme – The Last Of Scheduled Clinics For Second Dose Vaccinations

The Health Directorate would like to remind all persons aged 18 years and over that the week commencing Monday, 19 April will be the last for scheduled vaccination clinics.

Please check your AstraZeneca appointment card for the date on which you will need to receive your second dose.

The Health Directorate would like to ask all persons to please attend on the day specified on your Oxford AstraZeneca appointment card. Please also attend the same vaccination clinic at which you received your first dose. This will allow the continuation of efficient vaccination and administrative processes.

It is imperative that you bring your yellow vaccination card when you go to receive your second dose. If you do not have your card with you, staff will not be able to provide you with the second dose. The yellow vaccination card is required for administrative and record keeping purposes. 

You will be required to keep these cards thereafter as proof that you have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19. 

This coming week the mobile vaccination clinics will open at 9am and close at 2pm. Clinics at the Flu Pod will continue to open at 9am and close at 4pm.

If you have not yet received your first dose and would like to do so, please call Peta Henry on tel: 22998 or email: peta.henry@sainthelena.gov.sh 

Members of the public interested in receiving the first dose should be aware that the Health Directorate has only a limited supply of vaccines available. Vaccines are only available to residents of St Helena.  Saint Helenians who reside on St Helena, persons in service of the Crown in the right of the Government of St Helena and their dependants, persons exempt from immigration by virtue of their employment and their dependents, and persons with long term entry/work permits and their dependents, are all classified as residents and are eligible to receive the vaccine. 

Transit passengers, tourists and others who do not fall within the above categories will be declined.

The Health Directorate apologises for this inconvenience.  However it is a necessary measure to ensure the efficient use of the available supply of vaccines for the island’s community.
