People belonging to the age sub-category are advised to arrange their appointment on the first available day and time to have a continuous flow at vaccine centres.

Vaccinations are currently conducted in 10 centres across the island with 19 crews.

At the same time, five mobile units, one in each district, are covering remote areas, care homes, and other facilities.
