Epidemiologist Dr Avery Hinds has said vaccination efforts will begin to slow down, as the Health Ministry has dispensed half the doses of the covid19 vaccine it has in hand.
He said those people with appointments will be accommodated.
Speaking at the Health Ministry’s virtual media conference on Monday, Hinds said 38,638 vaccines had been dispensed thus far. He said the next round of vaccinations from the current doses would begin in June.
A total of 75,600 doses had been received thus far, he said: 2,000 from Barbados, 33,600 from the Covax facility, and 40,000 from India.
While calculations show that half of this total is 37,800, Hinds explained that some of the vials contained extra doses, so that was how additional people were vaccinated.
