100,000 Coronavirus Vaccine Doses Completed

More than 100,000 coronavirus vaccine doses have now been administered in Jersey.

99,700 had been completed as of Wednesday 19 May, but it will have passed the 100,000 mark by today (Monday 24 May).

More than 40,000 islanders have got both jabs.

Nearly half of people in their 30s have got their first dose.

People below the age of 30 can get their first jab next month.

More than 1,000 vaccine appointments a day are being issued for the rest of May to try and give first or second doses to as many 50s as possible, amid concerns over the fast spread of the Indian variant in the UK.

Letters have been sent to those in 'at risk' groups encouraging them to come forward too.

It's hoped that all adults will be fully vaccinated by the middle of August.

Five people have been diagnosed with coronavirus in Jersey over the weekend.

Four of the five were travelling into the island. The other was found through contact tracing.

It brings the total number of active cases up to eight.
