Residents of the British Virgin Islands are advised that the online registration form for the AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine will be temporarily closed from Wednesday, February 17.
According to health officials, this is to allow for the scheduling of appointments for those that fall into Phase One.
During this time, the registration form will also be updated to accommodate the subsequent phases and dates. The form will become available on Wednesday, February 24 at 10:00 a.m.
Vaccination efforts will continue at the Dr. D. Orlando Smith Hospital in Road Town, the Nurse Iris O’Neal Medical Centre on Virgin Gorda and the Rosalind Penn Health Centre in East End for residents who fall into Phase One from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Phase One includes health care and frontline workers such as Public and Private Health Care, Police Force, Fire and Rescue Department, Immigration Department, Her Majesty’s Customs, Ports Authority, BVI Airports Authority, Red Cross, VISAR and Mortuary Workers.
Residents that do not fall into the priority phases should allow for those phases to be completed before anticipating an appointment to be vaccinated.
