By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize has finally surpassed the 210,000 mark for persons vaccinated against COVID-19.
According to the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) COVID-19 Vaccination Report for Monday, December 13, 2021, the total number of persons who have received at least one COVID-19 jab is at 210,154. Of that total, 197,739 have received two doses.
In total, 490 persons ages 18 and older were vaccinated since the previous report.
A total of 29,490 persons between 12 – 17 years of age had been vaccinated with Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines. Two hundred eighty five were vaccinated in this category since the previous report last week Tuesday.
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.”
While persons getting vaccinated can just walk in at any of the vaccination sites countrywide, anyone wanting to register beforehand can do so by clicking here.
