The Ministry of Health & Wellness will be establishing more mobile vaccination sites as part of its community-based intervention aimed at significantly increasing the number of Jamaicans inoculated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.
Portfolio Minister, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, said that the intervention forms part of efforts to deal with the third wave of the virus and mobilise as best as possible, persons who otherwise would have to travel far distances to receive the vaccine.
He noted that the regional authorities have been tasked with communicating with the leadership in the respective communities to determine the sites that are closest to the people and can provide support for the entire community.
In the meantime, Dr. Tufton says that the vaccination blitz will continue this weekend in several parishes.
