By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize still can’t reach 210,000 vaccinated persons. Over the last few weeks, vaccinations have stalled so much so that the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) is now looking to share vaccines that will soon expire with neighboring countries, so they don’t go to waste.
At the last COVID-19 Vaccination Report for Monday, December 6, 2021, the MOHW reported that 209,662 persons have received at least one jab. Of that total, 196,206 have received two doses.
Hopefully, by the next report, Belize will have surpassed the 210,000 mark.
In total, 546 people ages 18 and older were vaccinated since the previous report.
A total of 29,180 persons between 12 – 17 years of age had been vaccinated with Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines. Ninety-four were vaccinated in this category since the previous report.
The MOHW is vaccinating with AstraZeneca, Sinopharm, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccines.
The MOHW said vaccinations are now available for everyone; 12 years and older. Persons who have been vaccinated for at least 8 weeks are asked to visit any Ministry of Health and Wellness health facility to get their second dose of the vaccine.
“We also advise that even after getting vaccinated, persons are to continue wearing a face mask properly in public, maintain consistent physical distancing, avoid social gatherings, and wash and sanitize hands often,” said the MOHW. “Please be safe and stay at home unless conducting essential business.”
