The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment wishes to commend the public for their response in recognizing the importance of being vaccinated against Covid-19 and for turning out in their numbers at the Market Square on Saturday, 17th April, 2021 to be inoculated.

The Ministry wishes to thank all of the Healthcare workers, Police Officers and Volunteers for going beyond the call of duty, recognizing the importance of the Covid-19 vaccination program and assisting on the weekend.
