These are only two of the sites around the island where Barbadians can visit to be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) this weekend.

All three vaccines – AstraZeneca, Sinopharm and Pfizer – will be available at all sites, and students aged 12 to 18 may go to any of the listed sites to receive the Pfizer vaccine only.

The Immunisation Unit reminded anyone visiting the vaccination centres to receive the vaccines that they must walk with their national identification cards or another current form of identification.
