Cabinet Notes: Since vaccination started, 5,400 adults have received the AstraZenica vaccine provided by the Dominican (5,000 doses) and the Indian (40,000) Governments.
Four sites—are now reporting the daily count of persons vaccinated as high as 600 in one day.
The figures have not yet been disaggregated, but those most at risk—the elderly over 65 years—ought to be vaccinated first, the Cabinet agreed.
Hence, going forward from Thursday, March 4, 2021, only those men and women 65 years and older, will be vaccinated.
The process of vaccinating those who sought the jab improved significantly today, Wednesday, it was reported by the POSRO; but, limiting the vaccinations to those 65 years and older will improve the daily operation system-wide.
The CMO reported that smaller teams will be vaccinating certain Government workers at their worksite.
The Clarevue Hospital, the Hospice Center, the National Solid Waste Authority, the APUA, the FSRC, the ABAA, the ABS Staff, the Teachers, Persons with Disabilities, High Court workers, the Police and other uniformed bodies, H.M. Prison, will receive vaccines on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday next week.
The list is not exhaustive, the CMO pointed out; workers ought to consult their supervisors and Permanent Secretaries for availability.
Hotel workers, Funeral Home workers, and other non-government bodies will also receive their vaccines on the weekend and next week.
The situation is very fluid.
