Covid-19 Coronavirus

COVID-19 vaccination programme

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause respiratory infections. These can range from the common cold to more serious diseases.

COVID-19 is caused by a new form of coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2). It was first reported in December 2019.

If you have recently taken up residence in the Isle of Man and are currently not registered with a local GP Practice you are encouraged to visit Manx Care’s information page on Registering with a General Practitioner.

  • If you are on the Island for a sustained period of time (more than a month) you will be able to contact the COVID 111 team to arrange an appointment and receive a COVID-19 vaccine.  Please provide evidence and information on other COVID-19 vaccines received when making and attending your appointment.

  • If you are on Island for a short period of time (less than one month) you should seek your vaccination through your own health service provider where you currently reside or live.
