Officials say the most vulnerable people in Jersey are set to be offered a fourth Covid vaccine shot and anyone with immunity problems will be contacted.
From Friday onwards, people over the age of 40 were entitled to book appointments provided that they had their last dose three months prior or more, reported BBC News.
The people under the age of 40 will have to wait until January.
- The time period for booster doses will be reduced from six months to three months for people age 40 and above. This implies that any islander who had the second dose three months or prior are now able to book a booster dose of Pfizer vaccine.
- For islanders aged 12 to 15 years old, second dose appointments are set to open 12 weeks after their first dose. The second doses of the Pfizer vaccine won’t be a part of the schools programme and will only be availed at the Vaccination Centres.
- Booster doses – the fourth dose – for all islanders with weakened immune systems. For the fourth time, the vaccination team will contact all residents of the island with immunodeficiency in order to make an appointment.
Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Richard Renouf said: “The booster rollout for eligible islanders so far has been extremely well received, with more than 32,000 booster doses administered, and 91% of islanders over the age of 80 having received a booster dose.”

“A booster dose for islanders aged 18 and over, as well as a second dose for young people aged 12-15 years old, will help to increase our level of protection against Covid this winter, and in particular the Omicron variant,” said Deputy Medical Officer of Health, Dr Ivan Muscat.
“While we are yet to have a confirmed case of Omicron on island, we do expect the variant to reach us, and getting vaccinated is the most important way to reduce its impact on our lives.”
“A booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine is shown to substantially increase antibody levels and will provide islanders with the best possible protection, as immunity from the first and second doses begins to wane.”
What the officials didn’t mention however was that the first four cases of Omicron were all fully vaccinated individuals. Even the first American case of Omicron was a fully vaccinated person. It is as though the fully vaccinated are spreading the Omicron COVID variant.
Meanwhile, the leading doctor credited with improving early treatment of COVID-19 has claimed in a conference that the goal of vaccine transmission campaigns is to “control and kill off a large proportion of our population without anyone suspecting that we were poisoned.”
“The deaths that are meant to follow the vaccinations will never be able to be pinned on the poison. They will be too diverse, there will be too many, and they will be in too broad a timeframe for us to understand that we have been poisoned,” claims Dr. Shankara Chetty.
