The vaccine mobile pop-ups are reaping success, according to some officials.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Health, in partnership with the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund and the United States Agency for International Development, officially launched the first joint pop-up project at the Bonnetts Resource Centre, St Michael, featuring music and social media influencers. There was also advertising wraps around one of the mobile units.

Many first-time vaxxers said they wanted to be safe from the virus while for others it was a requirement for a job.

Joint co-ordinator of the National Vaccination Programme, Dr Elizabeth Ferdinand, said the response was great.

“We came into this area the day before (Friday) to let them know we will be coming today (Saturday). Tomorrow (Sunday) we will be at Brandon’s Beach and Browne’s Beach,” she said. (CA)
