INDIVIDUALS in Honiara due for their second dose of AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine are being urged to get jabbed at the Central Field Hospital.
Pauline McNeil, permanent secretary to Ministry of Health and Medical Services, made this call on behalf of the ministry.
McNeil said the rollout of the second dose of AstraZeneca commenced on June 2, 2021.
“I reach out to people who are yet to receive their second dose of AstraZeneca to come get inoculated,” she said.
“Health ministry has noted at central field hospital only 1636 of 2656 individuals have already received their second dose since the commencement of the second dose earlier this month.”
She said in that case 1036 are yet to come forward to be inoculated
