The Ministry is in the process of procuring additional COVID-19 vaccines for those individuals who are interested only in the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines.
Persons are encouraged to take advantage of the COVID-19 vaccines which are available. These are the Pfizer, Sinopharm and the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccines that continue to be available at the Multiple Purpose Cultural and Exhibition Center and our Public Health Centers on Mondays to Thursdays from 9am to 4:30pm and on Fridays from 9am to 3pm. You are also encouraged to avail yourselves of COVID-19 vaccines during the Ministry’s special weekend vaccination programs. The venue and time for these sessions are announced on a weekly basis.
COVID-19 vaccines reduce transmission of the SARS CoV-2 virus and reduce the severity of the disease and deaths. COVID-19 vaccines also reduce the possibility of the long terms effects of COVID-19 that can include chronic fatigue or tiredness, shortness of breath and cognitive impairment or brain fog. Citizens and residents therefor encouraged to get vaccinated and also to receive their boosters.
