Within the first eight days of Grenada receiving its first shipment of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, 146 people received the initial dose and hundreds more are set to get inoculated, following government’s decision to target tourism and other hospitality workers.
One vaccination site has already been established at the island’s lone general hospital, a second is set to be established.
That site will be primarily for workers in the tourism/hospitality sector.
The island’s priority list for distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine also includes law enforcement officers such as police and prison officers.
Grenada’s latest COVID-19 dashboard, dated February 16, shows no new or active cases in Grenada. However, 179 people are in quarantine after being allowed to enter the country.
