The Ministry of Health, in partnership with the Health Authority of Anguilla, announces the opening of a second vaccination site at the old South Hill Clinic starting today Monday, March 15th. Residents of Anguilla, especially those living in the western health district, are invited to walk in to receive the vaccine between the hours of 9am-3:30pm with a break at 12-1:00pm during this week.
Vaccination represents the best protection against the negative health effects of the COVID- 19 virus. The Ministry of Health is encouraging residents to take advantage of the opportunity to ensure Anguilla can vaccinate 70% of the population in a timely manner. Once this goal is achieved, the Ministry of Health can began to consider the relaxation of COVID-19 measures which have greatly impacted the economy of Anguilla.
Persons are also invited to walk in to the main site at the Princess Alexandra Hospital Mondays to Fridays 9am-3pm with a break at lunch.
