Covid Caravan Coming Near You

All steps have been taken to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine and the Division of Health, Wellness and Family Development (DHWFD) continues to encourage persons to get vaccinated.

Even as our doctors and our nurses are dealing with the COVID-19 crisis, and even as resources are tight and we’re in a constant battle to manage that, we have hoped some relief would come from higher vaccination rates and having less people hospitalized,” said Health Secretary Tracy Davidson-Celestine during last week’s opening of the Moriah Health Centre.

The Division has implemented a COVID-19 Caravan to make vaccination even more convenient and it’s coming to a community near you this week.

Dr. Alimayu Chadband, Primary Care Services, Tobago Regional Health Authority (THRA) reiterated that the vaccine is safe to take.

“The vaccine helps to build that immune response that will be strong enough to fight off the infection if we’re exposed to the virus. Sufficient vaccines are available and we encourage everyone to give themselves a fighting chance in the face of this pandemic,” said Dr. Chadband during a recent caravan stop.

The caravan has traveled throughout Tobago. Last week, several locations were visited including the Black Rock Community Centre and Speyside Beach Facility and today it was at the Signal Hill and Patience Hill Community Centres.
