This Saturday, 22 May from 10am to 1pm, Minister of Tourism & Transport Hon. Kenneth Bryan and Minister of Health & Wellness Hon. Sabrina Turner, will be at the Aston Rutty Medical Wing to meet and greet Cayman Brac residents coming to get vaccinated ahead of the 9 June deadline for first doses.

The Ministers have invited all residents to join them in the Vaccination Challenge to get as many people as possible vaccinated against COVID-19 ahead of the 30 June expiry date of local vaccine stocks.

A prize draw for anyone being vaccinated between 8 May and 9 June was announced on Wednesday 5 May at a Government Press Briefing, and offers prizes including Cayman Airways airline tickets, staycations, and more.

COVID-19 vaccination clinic reminders:

  1. Sad the new MLAs are bragging they got vaccinated in May when they should have been vaccinated much earlier. In addition, why are we rewarding the holdouts with prizes to entice them to be vaccinated? Why aren’t we rewarding those who were vaccinated when they had their first opportunity? Give the prizes to those who ARE vaccinated and if anyone decides to get a soy then they could join in that as well.
