Commenting on the vaccine roll-out, Dr Lee said, “I am really pleased with the roll-out of our vaccination programme in the Cayman Islands, and want to thank everyone who has stepped forward so far. I encourage those of you who are eligible to take it. The vaccine is a great tool in our fight against this deadly disease, and in time as travel increases, it will protect us from COVID-19’s deadliest effects. Please help protect our whole community and have the vaccine when you are eligible.”
