The COVID-19 vaccination centres previously located at Yellow Roof and Green Roof Buildings have moved their services to the Mont Fleuri DA Office and the International Conference Centre at ICCS respectively.
The move, which took place earlier today Wednesday 3rd March 2021, is necessary to relieve the space once occupied by the centres. This will allow the services normally offered in the two buildings to resume operations.
Members of staff of the vaccination centres, started transferring their equipment and furniture early in the morning and had completed setup at the new locations by midday.
A nurse present during the move described the process as quick and commended her colleagues for the coordinated effort.
While the two centres had remained closed during the day to facilitate the relocation, they will be open from 8am tomorrow Thursday 4th March 2021 to continue administering the COVID-19 vaccines to the population.
The centres will resume operations with administration of the first dose of the COVISHIELD vaccines to persons aged 18 years and above.
The Ministry of Health has also reinforced that members of the public will be reminded of the new locations for administration of the second dose of the vaccines.
