As of Friday, July 30, all Jamaicans who are 18 years and older will be able to make an appointment for the first and second doses of the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.
Commencing at 10 am, persons will be able to register online at the Ministry of Health and Wellness’ website, www.moh.gov.jm, or through the vaccination call centre at 1-888-ONE-LOVE (663-5683).
This is while some 300,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, which have been donated by the United Kingdom government, are expected to arrive in the island on Friday.
The latest supply is to facilitate the staging of a vaccine blitz on the weekend for both first and second doses.
On Thursday, July 29, Portfolio Minister, Dr Christopher Tufton, urged Jamaicans to take the opportunity to get vaccinated saying:
“The AstraZeneca vaccine is the world’s most popular vaccine and, indeed, enough time has elapsed to show that it is safe… Approximately 300,000 Jamaicans have taken at least one dose, and so no one should have any fear about taking the vaccine,” said the minister.
Some 1.4 million doses of vaccine are expected to be supplied by the end of September.
