Vaccination programme praised by chief minister

The island's "game-changing" vaccination roll-out has been praised by the Chief Minister.

Howard Quayle said it's the sole reason the island can move on.

Tens of thousands of islanders are now as protected from the virus as is possible.

More that one hundred and seventeen thousand vaccines have been administered so far.

While fifty three thousand- about 88% of the population- have had both jabs.

There are still around 12 thousand second doses left to administer.
