Share post:

The Ministry of Health and Wellness will hold an outreach for children at the island’s polyclinics to bring them up-to-date with their immunisations on Saturday, April 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the regular childhood immunisation schedule and this activity is aimed at making sure all children receive their regular inoculations to protect them from vaccine preventable diseases.

The outreach will kick start activities leading up to Vaccination Week in the Americas, which runs from Saturday, April 24, to Friday, April 30. It will be held under the theme Vaccines Bring Us Closer. #GetVax.

Members of the public should note that only childhood vaccinations will be administered during the outreach this coming Saturday. No COVID-19 vaccinations will be done on that day.

No COVID-19 vaccinations will be done on that day. All polyclinics will participate in the outreach with the exception of the Winston Scott, Eunice Gibson, Edgar Cochrane and The Glebe Polyclinics. (BGIS)
