Nassau, 20 February 2022 (PAHO/WHO) – The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands partnered with the Ministry of Health and Wellness to host a series of pop-up vaccination sites throughout the island of New Providence. These areas included Yellow Elder, Masons Addition, Christie Park and Mother Butler Park.
Prior to the weekend vaccine services, healthcare workers walked around the community to inform residents of the pop-ups and encouraged them to further protect themselves and their loved ones through vaccines and boosters. The pop-ups were held on community parks. Speaker’s corners were also available where residents received answers for questions regarding COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccines.
As the number of COVID-19 cases decreases in The Bahamas, it is important to remind the public to continue practicing public health safety protocols and not let their guards down. Also, strategies that promote citizens to get vaccines and boosters are ongoing. The Country Office looks forward to partnering with the Ministry of Health and Wellness, and non-governmental organizations, to host similar activities in the near future as they seek to eliminate COVID-19 within the country and around the world.
