We will be running vaccine clinics, and patients will be called in the following order:
- those over age 90 years.
- those age 85 – 90 years
- those age 80 – 85 years
- those age 75-80 years
- those age 70 – 75 years.
The speed at which we give out the vaccine will depend on how quickly we receive delivery of the vaccine.
The vaccine is given in the upper arm, very similar to how the influenza vaccine is given.
However, there will be two separate doses, and the second dose is given three weeks after the first.
So far, around the world the experience with this vaccine has been very good.
