The North-West Regional Health Authority (NWRHA) has begun to administer the second dose of the Sinopharm vaccine, according to an advisory issued today.

The NWRHA says all persons who have received the Sinopharm vaccine must visit the same facility where their first dose was administered, on the date indicated on their immunization card, at the same time as the initial vaccine.

The NWRHA is urging persons who received their first dose of the Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine at one of its vaccination sites between Monday 26th April and Wednesday 5th May, 2021, and have not yet been contacted to schedule their second dose appointment, to visit the Paddock Area at the Queen’s Park Savannah from Monday 28th to Wednesday 30th June, 2021, between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm.

Everyone accessing these services must walk with their immunization card and one form of National Identification.

For more information, citizens are encouraged to contact 493-2838, Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
