Several vaccination blitz sites at maximum capacity
The Health Ministry is reporting that several COVID-19 vaccination blitz sites have reached their capacity arising from high demand.
The affected locations are:
* The National Arena in St Andrew
* Manchester High School
* Sandals Inn (Kent Avenue) St James
* All locations in Westmoreland
For other locations, priority will be given to persons with appointments and walk-ins are likely not to get vaccinated today, the health ministry stated.
The authorities have announced that there will be no further admissions at the National Arena for the #COVID vaccine today. Hundreds of people who were waiting in line outside have since dispersed. Hundreds more are now inside, awaiting their vaccine - Contributed video pic.twitter.com/zBvLtRFQJA
