Britain expects that a vaccine for Covid-19 could be available for Bermuda as early as next month, December 2020

Ms Wilson, the health minister, gave the update from Public Health England. The island is also looking at securing a supply from the Covax facility through the Pan-American Health Organisation. This would see enough doses for 25 per cent of the population in the first instance, she said.

She said that when a vaccine becomes available for the novel coronavirus, healthcare workers and the island’s more vulnerable would take priority.

She added that the Bermuda Health Plan, promised in the Throne Speech on Friday, will help with the “economic shock” caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

She said: “This government believes that Bermuda must have a holistic healthcare system that prioritises prevention, chronic disease management and healthcare delivery via primary healthcare with a restructuring of the health-system financing.”
