Over 300 persons in the BVI now fully vaccinated against COVID

Some 351 persons in the British Virgin Islands have now been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

This is according to the territory’s epidemiological summary as of Tuesday, April 27.

It said a total of 10,234 persons in the territory have received the first dose, so far.

Of that number, 8,425 are on Tortola and 294 of them have received their second dose. Over on Virgin Gorda, 1,281 persons have received the first dose of the vaccine while 57 have gotten their second jab.

Another 100 persons have been vaccinated on Anegada while Jost Van Dyke has 77 vaccinated persons. No second doses have been administered on either those sister islands as yet.

Just recently, Health Minister announced that starting May 15, fully vaccinated day-trippers travelling from the BVI to select neighbouring jurisdictions will no longer be required to quarantine when they return from their travels.

    How can over 10k be vaccinated already and they’re currently seeking 61 persons to get their first shot, to get to 10k? I think that 10,234 figure is incorrect.

    thats like only about 1% of the population. whats the update on the effects of the covid vaccine on the 1%? Any negative out comes? These borders are now opening and I believe most visitors will have the covid vaccine but that doesn’t mean that they can’t transmit the virus. If this outbreak ever becomes uncontrollable we will be facing another lock down, no jobs, medical resources depleted and a lot of deaths god forbid. there are a lot of negative outcomes in taking the vaccine, things to think about. (Are we willing to really take a chance in not taking the vaccine though, what if we do catch the virus and its just too late for us to be cured and watch our loved ones die because of refusing to take the vaccine) Its within our rights whether or not to take the vaccine, honestly its scary to know only 1% took it. what if those who took the vaccine survived and those who didnt perished. Holy crap i’m getting a headache. I’m stressed! church out!!

      Yep. Only 79% of the population now need to complete vaccination and the Nation going to open back up. Roll on 20Never. So sad for the BVI.

    And must of them are expats, that don’t want to go back to there country and afraid the get sent home for not taking the vaccine
    Stop forcing ppl to take this poison,
    This vaccine doesn’t stop you from getting the virus plus I’d doesn’t cure it.
    So what does this vaccine do?????
    Most health care workers I know refuse to that that poison

      I can’t believe I’m having to point out something so obvious but the answer to your question is the vaccination reduces your chance of getting infected and of passing it on if you do. Clearly that’s beneficial. The health care worker you know who don’t take the vaccine won’t be health care workers for long.
