On Monday 8 February 2021, the KEMH began the rollout of a nation-wide vaccination programme across the Falkland Islands. To date, 1,787 people have received their first dose and the schedule for second doses, in the week beginning 22 March, will be published shortly. Everyone who received a first dose will be offered a second dose and will be given an official card to keep in their records which provides proof that they have been fully immunised.

In the meantime, the government is asking everyone to ensure that they are registered with KEMH to assist with vaccination planning. Even if you have not required medical attention recently, it’s crucial that KEMH has up-to-date information on everyone living in the Islands, so that detailed plans can be developed.

Why is it important to be registered?

  • Over time the hospital can develop a good understanding of your healthcare needs
  • KEMH can help ensure you stay up to date with your vaccinations and vital screening
  • You can access health and wellbeing support, such as advice on diet and smoking
