Jamaica’s Minister of Health Dr Christopher Tufton says he is anticipating a greater turnout for the upcoming islandwide COVID-19 vaccination blitzes, as additional stakeholders come on board to assist in encouraging more people to get inoculated.

Tufton was speaking with journalists during Saturday’s staging of the second vaccination blitz at the National Arena, where just over 400 people received the first of two doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

The blitz is the mass vaccination plan being implemented by Jamaica’s Ministry of Health and Wellness to inoculate 1,000 people in a day at a single location.

Persons, 75 years and older, are now being targeted for vaccinations islandwide, with a reserve list to include members of the Jamaica Fire Brigade (JFB) and individuals over 60 years.
