About 200 people were vaccinated in the first hour of the “Road Trip Vaccination Drive Thru” at the Frankie Boodram Wallerfield International Raceway, on Wednesday morning.

The site opened for operation at 8 am and by 9 am, North Central Regional Health Authority officials said it was well subscribed.

People in cars, maxi taxis and buses were all lined up along the raceway, as staff and volunteers directed the vehicles through various tents for registration, vaccination and observation after receiving the jabs.
