In keeping with plans to vaccinate persons 65years and over as a priority, vaccination sites will open in All Saints, and Jennings to cater for the elderly in the south, south west and south east of the island. To facilitate convenient access, vaccination sites will 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 to allow the vaccination teams to inoculate persons in these two areas. 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.
Additionally, teachers will be inoculated over the period 8th to 10th March 2021 at the Antigua Girls High School. Also, people who are incapacitated and with disabilities will be prioritized for vaccination in their homes through a scheduling system.
The number of people inoculated continues to grow with a combined total of 2400 people inoculated on 3rd March 2021. Vaccination was also conducted at the Central Board of Health, the Defense Force, and the National Solid Waste Management Authority. The Minister of Health Honourable Sir Molwyn Joseph is delighted with the growth in the number of people turning out to be inoculated.
Priority is given to the elderly at vaccination sites given their vulnerability.
