System Of Verifying Vaccination Status To Be Established


Prime Minister Andrew Holness, says the Government is moving to make travel with Jamaica’s vaccination card more seamless by establishing a system for verifying the validity of the vaccination status of Jamaicans.

The Prime Minister’s announcement comes following concerns being raised after it emerged that the United Kingdom’s Government does not recognise the vaccination status of Jamaicans who travel to that country, based on new travel guidelines established.

Prime Minister Holness sought to reassure Jamaicans that the country’s vaccination programme meets the highest standard, noting that the vaccines administered to the more than 700, 000 Jamaicans inoculated, so far, are safe.
