The Ministry of Health and Wellness has previously communicated that it anticipates to transit to Phase Two of the National Vaccine Deployment Plan in August 2021. Phase two covers adults aged 30 to 54. As at the week ending 16 July 2021, some districts were already receiving dwindling numbers of those currently targeted on Phase one (those aged 55 and above).
In view of this development, the ministry will on 22 July 2021, proceed to vaccinate those falling in the Phase two category, specifically starting with those aged 45 to 54. The reason for not inviting the whole Phase two cohort at a go is to avoid congestion at vaccination sites. The ministry therefore, advises adults aged 45 to 54 to register and visit their nearest vaccination site with effect from 22 July 2021. Vaccination sites will be open from 0730hrs to 1630hrs from Monday to Friday across the country. Any change in these times will be communicated.
