COVID vaccination centres open in Jamaica this weekend: Details

There has been a great deal happening on the COVID-19 front in Jamaica. Before going into details in another post, I thought I would share with you this list of vaccination centres. Vaccine “hesitancy” remains high. Please, do go and get vaccinated this weekend! Protect yourself, and others. Here is the release from the Ministry of Health and Wellness.

This is a PSA!

Vaccination sites will this weekend open across the island as the Ministry continues offering 1st and 2nd doses of AstraZeneca and the single dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine. Following this weekend’s schedule, fixed vaccination sites will operate throughout the coming week.          

The Ministry continues to urge persons due their second dose of AstraZeneca to attend a vaccination site and take the jab. Persons now due the second dose or who may be due in coming weeks, will have their appointments scheduled and should look out for a text message with confirmation details. If this message is not received, those due their second dose of the vaccine should proceed to the nearest site for vaccination. Persons are not fully vaccinated until they have received the TWO doses.

Information on this weekend’s vaccination sites is available online at https://vaccination.moh.gov.jm. Details are also available below.           

The Ministry of Health and Wellness continues to advise members of the public to get vaccinated. To do so, Jamaicans are encouraged to make their vaccination appointments online at www.moh.gov.jm or by calling the Vaccination Call Centre at 888-ONE-LOVE (888-663-5683).

Members of the public who have their appointments confirmed should visit the vaccination site with their government-issued identification, or a letter from the Justice of the Peace. Those due a second dose will also need to take their vaccination card.
