Fellow Anguillians and Residents of Anguilla,
As Premier and Minister of Health, I am pleased to announce that the first batch of 8000 doses of the Astrazeneca vaccine to combat SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus which causes COVID-19 disease is scheduled to arrive in Anguilla on Thursday 4th February.
The vaccine will officially be launched on Friday 5th February, when I, along with other elected representatives and health personnel will receive the first doses.
Persons who have already registered to receive the vaccine will be contacted to schedule appointments beginning from Monday 8th February.
I am encouraging all Anguillians and residents of Anguilla, other than those under 18 years and pregnant women, to register and to take the vaccine. This is necessary to preserve the health of our people, get our people back to work and save our economy.
Our hardworking health, surveillance, border control teams and the Royal Anguilla Police Force, have kept us safe up to this point. It is now time for all of us to do our part.
I would also like to thank the Governor’s Office and the government of the United Kingdom for procuring the vaccine on our behalf.
Please register at www.beatcovid19.ai/vaccine and take the vaccine.
