BUSH ROAD: Carrefour Markets St. Maarten and Celebrity Cruises have launched a COVID-19 Vaccination Registration and Appointment Drive along with a 20 percent discount on Saturday May 22 and 29, and June 5 from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Anil Sabnani of Carrefour Markets said come down to Carrefour Bush Road on the next three Saturdays to register for the covid jab, receive an appointment and go shopping (US $75 minimum purchase required). After you receive your first dose, visit Carrefour with your vaccination card and receive the discount coupon.
Carrefour and Celebrity Cruises have funded the discount to provide an incentive to generate vaccine registrations and appointments.
Joshua Carroll of Royal Caribbean Group said, “The health and safety of the communities we visit are our top priority and this goes hand in hand with a strong and successful return to tourism.”
Tourism and Economic Affairs Minister Ludmila de Weever and Public Health Minister Omar Ottley said this effort demonstrates how private industry and public health officials can work together.
Only Dutch St. Maarten (documented and undocumented) residents are eligible for the jab. No immigration checks.
Jeffrey “Dr. Soc” Sochrin of Island 92 radio spearheaded this initiative.
