Ministry of Health & Wellness and SMART Belize Launch Children’s Vaccination Raffle

Posted: Friday, December 17, 2021. 9:39 pm CST.

SMART Belize, subsidiary of Speednet Communications Limited, is partnering with the Ministry of Health and Wellness to launch a children’s vaccination raffle against COVID-19.

Children, ages 12 to 17, who receive their first or second vaccination dose during the period December 16, 2021, to March 15, 2022, will be eligible for entry to the raffle.

At present two-thirds of adults are fully vaccinated and children are encouraged to get the jab in advance of schools reopening for face-to-face learning in January.

The Ministry has issued its thanks to SMART for joining it in partnership, as because of the complexity and cost of today’s health environment, public health agencies and others involved in prevention efforts cannot afford to work in isolation.

The public is reminded to get vaccinated as a matter of urgency if they have not already done so. The Ministry also reiterates the importance of adhering to the public health prevention measures, which include properly wearing a fitted face mask that covers both the nose and mouth, maintaining physical distance, avoiding crowds where possible, and regularly washing and sanitizing hands.

The Ministry of Health & Wellness also wishes the public a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.
