Mr Rankin took his booster shot on August 10, 2022, at Dr D. Orlando Smith Hospital.
The Governor, according to Government Information Services (GIS) on August 12, 2022, said he was grateful to be able to get his second booster, which is his fourth COVID-19 injection in total.
The Governor said the UK has so far made nine deliveries of vaccines to the VI, with the current shipment of the adult Pfizer vaccine due to expire at the end of September.
During a press conference on August 10, 2022, Governor Rankin said he was in discussions with the Chief Medical Officer about a further delivery of vaccines this autumn.
“While the impact of COVID and numbers of cases appears to have reduced, vaccines remain the best way to protect our community and freedoms, with previous restrictions now largely lifted. I urge those of you who can to vaccinate, even if you have not yet had your first dose. It is not too late," Governor Rankin added.
A second booster is available to those considered vulnerable or over 65 years old. Persons can call 494-3497 to book their vaccination appointments at their community clinics.
