(BVI News) With 8,000 COVID-19 vaccines scheduled to arrive in the territory in just under a week, members of the general public interested in taking the vaccine will be able to do so when the Ministry of Health establishes a platform to register for inoculation.
This is according to the Health Minister Carvin Malone who made the announcement during a media conference on Thursday.
“The first tranches of vaccine donated by the UK government are expected to arrive in the territory on February 4th when 8,000 doses of the AstraZeneca AZD1222 will arrive in the territory,” Malone said.
“The Ministry of Health is in the process of reviewing the necessary information systems to allow persons in the general public to register their interest to be vaccinated. Persons are asked to remain patient and it is the intent of the government to ensure that everyone who wishes to have the vaccine is able to have access to it,” he added.
