Some Jamaicans To Be Given New Vaccination Cards

The Ministry of Health & Wellness is urging members of the public who have been issued a vaccination card with the manufacturer’s information as “SII” to visit a permanent vaccination site to receive an updated card.

These individuals should take along their current cards to a permanent site listed on the Ministry’s vaccination web portal vaccination.moh.gov.jm.

The change has become necessary, as the Ministry seeks to ensure that the vaccination card contains the complete manufacturer’s information and to minimise any challenges that Jamaicans may experience while travelling.

In the meantime, the Ministry continues to administer the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines to persons 18 years and older. The Pfizer vaccine is available to children 12 years older, as well as persons 50 years and older.

  

Up to 5:00 pm on Wednesday, (November 24) a total of 1,087,313 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered. Of that total, 588,371 were first doses, 433,174 were second doses and 65,768 were single doses.

Jamaicans are encouraged to become vaccinated in order to protect themselves from sever illness, hospitalisation and death related to COVID-19.

Members of the public are asked to make their appointment using the Ministry of Health & Wellness’s website (www.moh.gov.jm) or by calling the National Vaccination Centre at 888-ONE-LOVE (888-663-5683) to be vaccinated.
