Strong demand continues for the COVID-19 Vaccine


Strong demand for the covid-19 vaccine continues as the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment makes every effort to vaccinate the elderly and vulnerable in the population. Today, Thursday, March 4, approximately 2,700 people were inoculated with the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment is reminding recently vaccinated individuals of the necessity to continue to adhere to the COVID-19 protocols of mask wearing, physical distancing and hand washing.

Vaccination of teachers will commence on the weekend and into early next week.

Vaccination sites will also open at the All-Saints Secondary School and the Jennings Primary School over the period 8th to 10th March 2021.


Consequently, the vaccination sites at the Glanvilles and Villa Polyclinics will close temporarily for these 3 days.


The vaccination sites in both the Glanvilles and Villa Polyclinics will resume inoculation from 11th March 2021.


The public vaccination sites will close on weekends to focus on vaccinating targeted groups.

  1. Promising start, good numbers.
    One thought, people vaccinated on 1 March were given what appears to be Whit Monday 24 May as their second dose date.
    IF the centers will be closed on Public Holidays, please change to Friday 21 May when confirming appointments to those people, to ensure people vaccinated on or after 2 March are within their 12-week window for second dose. Thank you.

  2. Great “jab”
    I encountered one of the most professional teams of health care and administrative workers today at Villa Polyclinic. All of my fears were allayed upon reaching the entrance. I was met with a greeting from the team at the gate and left convinced that if we as a people were to emulate the attitudes of the health care and administrative staff at the Villa Polyclinic, Antigua and Barbuda will be in good hands. The administrative team was cordial and there was a seamless flow from sitting under the tent to collecting your cards after the inoculation process. In some instances, those who did not collect their cards, were informed as to the date for their 2nd jab. I must again complement all those who worked; from the cleaners, nurses and liaison officers to keep up the great “jab”.
