People over 50 to receive COVID-19 vaccine invitations

People in their late 50s have reportedly started receiving invitations to receive their COVID-19 vaccine. The rest of the age group will soon also be asked to sign up to receive the jab. On Monday, the government urged those over 60 who had yet to receive the invite to contact the authorities to be given an appointment.

Currently, 42% of adults in Malta have received at least one dose of the jab, as confirmed by Health Minister Chris Fearne. The statistics broken down further reveal that 96% of over 80 received the shot, with 86% being over 70 and 76% being over 60. The vaccine has greatly contributed to the easing of COVID-19 related hospitalisations and ITU admissions, with Malta currently having administered 223,020 vaccines of which 61,111 are second doses.
