Jamaica’s vaccine sites for the Heroes’ Day holiday weekend: October 16 to 18, 2021

“Be a Hero” is the slogan the Ministry of Health and Wellness has adopted for this weekend’s vaccination blitz.

The all-island vaccination drive takes place Saturday, October 16 to Heroes Day on Monday October 18, 2021 with 90 vaccination sites set to open throughout the period. The Heroes Weekend vaccination thrust comes as the Ministry targets administering ONE (1) MILLION vaccine doses on or before November 30, 2021.         

Members of the public are strongly encouraged to attend a vaccination site to receive their first or second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, or the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine. Visit www.vaccination.moh.gov.jm or the Ministry’s social media pages for the full schedule of sites and opening hours. Details are also available below. 

Jamaicans are encouraged to make their vaccination appointments online by visiting www.moh.gov.jm or by calling the Vaccination Call Centre at 888-ONE-LOVE (888-663-5683). Persons may also walk in to the nearest site.

Members of the public should take along their government-issued identification, or a letter from the Justice of the Peace.

Have you had your first dose of AstraZeneca? If so, you will also need to take your vaccination card to get your second.

Go for it! Go AstraZeneca! Can’t go wrong…

Here are the vaccine centres for Jamaica for the three-day weekend:
