Grenada begins limited COVID-19 vaccination programme

Grenada's Minister of Tourism, Clarice Modeste, was among hundreds of tourism, and front line workers who received their first dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine on Monday.

The Tourism Minister, who is a medical doctor, said she was confident the vaccine will not only assist in resuming operations for the tourism sector, but other sectors that are either directly or indirectly linked to tourism.

The national vaccination process will be conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis and will run until February 26.

Grenada is scheduled to receive 45,600 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine through the COVAX Facility, but earlier this month received 3,000 doses which were part of a gift the Government of India gave to Barbados and Dominica.
