Dr. Melissa Diaz- Musa

Also trending downward is the number of persons getting vaccinated for COVID-19. There has been a decline in the uptake, according to Doctor Musa. She reminded the general public that persons can still receive pediatric vaccines and booster shots at any public health facility across the country.

“Definitely we have seen a bit of decline we have seen a decline in the vaccine uptake and there are many reasons for that. We have seen the numbers go down. We have seen the hospitalization going down. And, we do have fifty-four point three percent of our total population fully vaccinated. We have had significant uptake with boosters as well. I just want to remind the public that we do have Pfizer pediatric still ongoing in all health facilities and we are visiting schools as well. We have the adult Pfizer, and we do have AstraZeneca. So, please come in if you haven’t gotten your vaccine and if you haven’t been boosted please come in and get that.”
