The Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 drive-thru vaccination campaign continued today as more Guyanese turn out to get either their first or second doses.
The exercise was held at two locations, the Guyana National Stadium at Providence, East Bank Demerara and the MovieTowne Parking lot at Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown.
Dr Oneka Scott, a Maternal Child Officer from the Ministry of Health, who was at the Providence location, lauded persons for turning out in droves to get vaccinated. She said they had persons there since 07:00h when the exercise was slated to start until 09:00h.
According to Dr Scott, this response is especially pleasing given the impact the deadly virus is having in the country.
“We do have, unfortunately, in Guyana a high death rate from COVID-19. In order for us to get those numbers down, this is what we have to do make vaccinations accessible, make them convenient, increase the opportunity for persons to get vaccinated and this is what the drive-thru is all about,” said Scott.
