The Public Health Department has released the latest schedule for the COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic for 22nd March – 10 April 2021. The COVID-19 vaccine is available to all persons 16 years and over (by Surname). The public is reminded to follow the published vaccination schedule and come prepared with appropriate identification and documentation showing proof of being an ordinarily and legally resident in the Cayman Islands (see list of accepted ID/documentation below).
As of 17 March, the total number of COVID-19 vaccines administered to date is 37,124. 24,997 (38.5% of the estimated population) have received at least one dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, while 12,127 have completed the two-dose course.
The COVID-19 vaccination programme continues to administer Dose 2 vaccinations. Individuals receiving their second dose are reminded that the date noted on the vaccination card for the second dose is the earliest date in which you can receive the vaccine (21 days later or no longer than 12 weeks after the first dose). If you received your first dose at a District Health Centre you can receive your second dose at the airport.
