The Ministry of Health on Thursday announced that some Jamaicans who have been inoculated against COVID-19 will be issued new vaccination cards.
A statement from the ministry says persons who were issued a vaccination card with the manufacturer's information as "SII" should visit a permanent vaccination site to receive an updated card.
These individuals should take along their current cards.
The ministry says the change has become necessary, as it seeks to ensure that the vaccination card contains the complete manufacturer's information and to minimise challenges that Jamaicans may experience while travelling.
As at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, some 1,087,313 doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered in Jamaica.
The ministry says 588,371 were first doses, while 498,942 were second and single doses.
