Bailiwick Vaccination Programme

This page was last updated on 4 June 2021 at 14:20hrs.

If you are aged 40 years or over and have not yet booked your vaccination appointment, we would encourage you to call the Vaccination Call Centre on 01481 220006.

Additionally we ask for this same particular group of islanders to call if they have not yet received a letter.

Good hand hygiene still applies if you have received the vaccine. If you have been contacted to self-isolate, this also still applies even if you have received the vaccine.

The first vaccine was delivered on the 17 December 2020 in the vaccination centre at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital. With a small break in delivery over Christmas and New Year, vaccinations are currently being delivered in the Community Vaccination Centre and by our Primary Care colleagues.

All vaccinations in Alderney and Sark are being managed by the islands’ GP practices.

The Community Vaccination Centre (CVC) opened on Monday 25 January 2021 in the Sir John Loveridge Hall at Beau Sejour. The operational times for the CVC are between 10 am and 7pm - Tuesday to Saturday.

Islanders are reminded that there is a priority order for vaccinations and are asked to be patient as we progress through the agreed cohort list. Further details can be found here.

Invitation letters will be sent out to the prioritised cohorts in order.  Please note that the invite letters will be sent out in batches to manage the flow of callers booking appointments.

To support islanders booking appointments, a dedicated vaccination call centre has been established to book appointments every weekday between 8am and 8pm and every weekend between 8 am and 12 noon. If you cannot get through on these lines initially please be patient and keep trying.

We will try, where possible, to schedule vaccination appointments around existing commitments. However, we would ask that islanders prioritise receiving their vaccinations.

The vaccinations for the cohorts being delivered at the CVC will have a 6 or 10 week interval between doses (depending on the vaccine delivered). This is to ensure the most optimal and strategic use is made of the vaccine supply allocated to the Bailiwick in the forthcoming months. The gap between doses followed a detailed evaluation of the data regarding the efficacy of the vaccine with differing timing options.

The vaccine does not prevent people catching and spreading COVID-19. It does however, prevent individuals from suffering from the serious side effects of, or dying as a result of, the virus.
