M.O.H.W. Launches Vaccine Registration App

A COVID-19 Vaccination registration app was launched today. Currently, it allows people who fall under phase one, two and three to register online for an appointment to be vaccinated.  But at the moment, there are no long lines at clinics giving the vaccines and the process only takes fifteen to twenty minutes for most citizens. So why the transition to online registration? Doctor Natalia Beer, Technical Advisor for Maternal and Child Health in the Ministry of Health and Wellness, gave us an explanation.

“This is ready now online. You can find it on the Ministry of Health and Wellness Facebook page. We have both the instructional video and the link for the app. So anyone that has access to the link can use the app for registration. The link is brsa.health.gov.bz. The purpose is for persons to register. And once you register and access the vaccination at a vaccination site, the process should be a bit smoother, because you will have all the information that the person already entered in more readily available at the location.   The work that they do their when you walk in, that time could be use for observation and to vaccinate more persons. So having the information uploaded beforehand makes it easier for us and the person accessing the vaccine. When the person registers, they will receive a text message they register successfully. When the staff goes to the list of persons that sign up for the vaccine then they will do the scheduling. And then the person would receive a second text message to their phone stating the time and the location where the vaccine will be administered. At the vaccination site, once the vaccine is administered, that is also documented. Then they will get a third message, and this will be the vaccination card. Well not exactly the card, but the vaccination information as a text message on their phone.”

 

To date, a total of thirty-five thousand nine hundred and nine Belizeans have been vaccinated.
