Jamaica administers Sinopharm vaccine

Beginning today (Monday, December 13, 2021), members of the public who are 18 years and older are invited to book a vaccination appointment to receive the first of two doses of the Sinopharm vaccine.

The vaccine’s rollout follows the arrival of a shipment on November 27, 2021 from the People’s Republic of China. Sinopharm will be made available at select vaccination sites islandwide.

Appointments may be made by using the online portal at the Ministry of Health & Wellness’s website (www.moh.gov.jm) or by calling the National Vaccination Call Centre at 888-ONE-LOVE (888-663-5683). Persons should take along a government-issued identification or letter from a Justice of the Peace.

The Sinopharm vaccine has been proven safe and effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalisation and death associated with COVID-19. The two-dose vaccine requires a period of three to four weeks between doses. Details on Sinopharm are available at vaccination.moh.gov.jm.
