88,816 individuals have so far received booster doses of the Moderna and 35 individuals have received the Pfizer booster COVID-19 vaccine.

92.9 percent of the adult target population are fully vaccinated while 98.1 percent have received one dose.

Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong says they have noted how difficult it is to increase their vaccination coverage for the last 8% of the adult population, despite the increased risk of severe outcomes in this group.

He says while they will continue to do their part to promote and deploy vaccines, they need community support to sustain the impact of their efforts especially to the vulnerable within this 8%.
