Jamaica has created a new Tourism Vaccination Task Force in an ambitious drive to inoculate all 170,000 tourism workers.
Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, Edmund Bartlett, is leading the task force. He has organised a series of voluntary vaccination blitzes at strategic sites. The initiative increases access to vaccinations for Jamaica’s tourism workers, including workers in hotels, villas and guest houses, attractions, airports, cruise ports, craft markets as well as ground transportation operators.
“The immunization of tourism workers is vital to safeguarding Jamaica’s tourism sector and the Tourism Vaccination Task Force has been working assiduously to ensure that we make it easier for our essential workers to have access to vaccines,” Bartlett said.
