The mobile walk-in vaccination center at Sandys Secondary Middle School had quite a few people turn up to get vaccinated this morning.
“This morning, [the team] was inundated with people. They came using transportation provided by the government, using bus routes, walking and using their own vehicles,” Ricky Brathwaite said. “It’s a hot day today, but people are weathering the heat to get their vaccine, which is important to the country.”
The team is not forcing anyone to get vaccinated, but, by offering mobile vaccinations in various parts of the community every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, they feel that they are making that choice a little easier for people.
“We also have doctors and nurses present to answer any questions that people may have. These experts can provide people with assurances or give them more information so that they can make more informed decisions,” Mr. Brathwaite said.
In the data that has been collected so far, the team has seen that vaccination sites in some parishes are being used more than in other parishes.
“ We understand that there are some areas around the island that are less vaccinated, and all we can do is help people make decisions, but it is ultimately their own choice,” Mr. Brathwaite said.
Due to Mother’s Day this Sunday, the team will be administering vaccines on Saturday, May 8 instead at the National Sports Center.
