Nearly 800 persons took their first jab of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine at the weekend through the government’s vaccination campaign dubbed Operation Protect Each Other Drive-Thru Vaccination.
The campaign happened at the festival grounds in Road Town and was part of the government’s response to the alarming increase of COVID cases and deaths in the territory in recent weeks.
It continues at the same location all of this week from 9 am to 4 pm daily.
Meanwhile, another 134 persons took their second dose of the vaccine through the said campaign; bringing the overall number of jabs administer to 887.
“Hang in there BVI! God is with us! Let’s keep doing it BVI,” Premier Andrew Fahie said while sharing the vaccination statistics from the campaign.
“Today with the help of our caring, hard-working, professional and dedicated healthcare team and all the volunteers and donors of water, food, etcetera, day two of Operation Project Each Other was encouraging. More progress was made to save lives,” he added.
