The whole principle is if you give a vaccine to somebody, you protect them from getting infected, but you also prevent them from transmitting the disease to other people.
Often the people we need to protect with herd immunity are most vulnerable to serious disease.
Rent a boat this summer
Boats are hygienic, self-contained and controlled environments that can offer extremely limited contact with other people. Where could be better for a social distancing excursion?
We have implemented some health and safety measures to help ensure a safe and hygienic environment. These include:
– Sanitizing of all boats regularly.
– Sanitizing provisions on the dock before going on board the boat
– Daily temperature checks for crew

After Malta was the first country in the European Union to start vaccinating people over 16 years of age, two weeks ago, today, much earlier than initially projected, Malta has reached herd immunity, with 70% of the adult population now vaccinated with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and with 42% of the population now fully vaccinated.
Malta’s National Vaccination Programme, has led to a sharp decrease in new COVID-19 cases registered daily, with the number of daily deaths also coming to a halt for the last 17 days, and subsequently also registering daily decrease in COVID-19 Active Cases.
“With 70% of Malta’s adult population vaccinated with at least one dose, Malta is one of the safest places to visit in the world,” Malta’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health Chris Fearne said during the announcement.
“Malta achieving its herd immunity from COVID-19 is of paramount importance for the local economy especially to the tourism sector. The Maltese Government’s strategy of a strong vaccination rollout complimented with restrictive measures aimed at being eased in a gradual manner are the main ingredients behind this positive news. Our country will remain vigilant in its fight against the virus, while assuring that Malta’s tourism industry truly becomes sustainable in the post-pandemic era.” remarked Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo.
“Today’s announcement gives us the right amount of motivation which we all need, as we are set to welcome tourists back to the Maltese Islands as from the 1st June. This development will definitely serve as a further incentive for holiday-makers looking for a relaxing and most importantly, safe holiday,” Malta Tourism Authority Chief Executive Officer, Johann Buttigieg added.
