Public Health has reached priority group five as it continues to work through the first phase of Covid-19 vaccinations in Guernsey.
There are an estimated 4,000 people to vaccinate in the latest cohort identified by Public Health.

It’s important to note that all data relating to completed groups and cohorts refers to the first dose of the vaccine only.
“Everyone [in priority groups 1, 2a, 3 and 4a] have had a first dose,” said Dr Brink, “many have had their second dose.”
3,090 people have now received their second dose and more than 13,000 people have received their first dose.
We’re being asked to be patient, as staff at Public Health start booking in vaccinations in groups of 500.
“We start at 69 [year-old] and move downwards,” said Dr Brink.

Dr Brink said Guernsey is on track to have vaccinated everyone in Phase 1 by the time May comes.
“By the end of April we’re hoping to have given everyone [in groups 1-9] who wants their vaccine, a vaccination,” she said.
