On April 26, a little over two months since the start of the vaccination campaign on St. Maarten, the country has reached the milestone of the 20,000th vaccine. It was administered to Julia Richardson at the Collective Prevention Service (CPS) office.
St. Maarten still has a long way to go. The percentage of vaccinated people against the COVID-19 virus on Sint Maarten is still not high enough to fight off a possible third wave of infection. That is why the vaccination process has been scaled up to reach the goal as soon as possible. This has become even more important since there are most infections related to the UK variant. The Indian and New York variants have also been detected in the country.
Registration and the vaccine are free.
Walk-ins for on-site registration and vaccination on the same day are possible at Belair Community Center 9:00am and 3:00pm and at CPS 8:30am and 4:00pm.
