“Effective immediately the ministry of health and wellness would like to inform the general public that booster shots are now available at the different vaccination sites. However, the booster shots that are available are for certain categories of persons. So, we are starting the booster shots for person in high risk groups. So, health care workers, you are now able to get your booster. Persons that have comorbidities, which means that persons who may have diabetes, hyper tension, cancer or any other auto immune disorder, we recommend that you access your booster shot for COVID 19, and also persons sixty years and older. So, going forward the booster shots are available for anyone who have completed their two shots of AstraZeneca. They can go for a third dose, as a booster to any of the facilities. If you also got the Pfizer, you can also go and get the booster. So, if you have five months post your second dose, you can access the booster, effective immediately.”
