BELAIR – A team of the Dutch Caribbean Coast Guard officers has received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine to protect them against COVID-19. This followed a vaccine information session with the organization earlier in April.
Coastguard Head of Operation Jurandi Sambre said, “I took the vaccine to keep myself and my loved ones safe. By taking the vaccine, we can stop the pandemic and continue to live our lives as normal as possible.” Sambre and others will get their second dose of the free vaccine in three weeks.
With the more contagious British (UK) variant now prominently present on the island, the need to protect ourselves against the virus has become increasingly more important.
Organizations that want to organize an information session for staff can email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this. After the session, a time slot can be reserved for staff who want to receive the vaccine together as the Coastguard did on Friday.
