MOBILE VACCINATION UNIT CONTINUES COMMUNITY PROGRAMME UNTIL SATURDAY, MOVING NEXT TO FALMOUTH & CEDAR GROVE
The Ministry of Health is expanding its Mobile Unit Programme to other parts of the country, taking the vaccination service to persons within their communities.
To this end, beginning May 6, and running for three days until Saturday May 8, mobile-vaccination events will be staged at strategic locations.
On Thursday, the unit was at the Woods Center parking lot, in the vicinity of Scotia Bank, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
On Friday, May 7, the mobile team will move to Falmouth and be stationed in the Bailey’s Supermarket parking lot, again from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The unit then moves to the northern section of the island on Saturday, and will be at the Cedar Grove Playing Field from 9 until 3 o’clock that day.
These three events, according to the Ministry of Health, “will allow citizens and residents to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, particularly those with transportation issues and those who are unable to access the established vaccination centers during the 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. opening hours.”
The Vaccine Centres located at the Glanvilles and Villa Polyclinics, the Precision Centre in Paynters, and the Multipurpose Cultural Centre at Perry Bay will continue with normal opening hours, Monday to Friday.
