The COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic has opened its next phase of booster shots for those aged 50 and over beginning today Tuesday 19 October.
“We are pleased with the rollout of the booster programme to date and now extend the opportunity for persons aged fifty and above to enhance their immunity against COVID-19. As we contend with community transmission here in the Cayman Islands, we encourage all who are eligible for vaccination to come forward and protect themselves”, states Medical Officer of Health Dr. Samuel Williams-Rodriguez.
The clinically vulnerable remain eligible to receive boosters throughout all phases of the programme. Persons wishing to receive their first or second dose are free to attend the clinic at any time.
The 3rd dose of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine must be administered at least 6 months after the 2nd dose. Persons eligible to receive their booster should bring along their vaccination card or digital certificate showing proof of their 2nd dose and a government-issued photo ID.
If you are homebound and unable to attend one of the vaccination clinics, please contact the Flu Hotline 947-3077, 1-800-534-8600, email@example.com or your local HSA District Health Centre and arrangements will be made with a Public Health nurse to provide your vaccine in the comfort of your home.
