COVID-19 vaccinations for the general population to resume Wednesday


Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr. Christopher Tufton, says coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations for the general population will resume on Wednesday (August 25).

This, after breaking for the four-day vaccination blitz for children, 12-18 years, which commenced on Saturday (August 21) and concludes on Tuesday (August 24).

Dr. Tufton indicated that the Pfizer vaccine will now be used with the AstraZeneca brand for the general population.

The Minister noted that while persons have indicated a preference for particular brands, they can rest assured that in terms of efficacy and safety, “they are all providing the same protection”.
