The Ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport officially selected the Moderna vaccine for distribution in Statia.

ST. EUSTATIUS–Deputy Government Commissioner Alida Francis said the COVID-19 vaccine is scheduled to arrive in St. Eustatius on Monday, February 15, and the public entity St. Eustatius is striving to start the vaccination right after the vaccine’s arrival.

The Ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport officially selected the Moderna vaccine for distribution in Statia. The Public Health Department is currently in full preparation for the vaccinations.

A town-hall meeting in collaboration between the public entity and the Lions Club will take place at Mike van Putten Youth Centre/Lions’ Den at 7:00pm today, Wednesday, January 27. Information will be provided about the vaccine and the vaccinations, why it is strongly advised to get vaccinated and how safe the vaccine is. Information will also be shared about how the vaccine was developed, and some of the myths that are being spread on the Internet will also be discussed.

“We are strongly advising persons to attend the meeting, as a lot of information will be shared,” Francis said. The town-hall meeting will be broadcast live via the St. Eustatius government’s Facebook page.
