THE Second vaccination roll out for the Western Province is currently underway.

Front liners residing at the provincial capital, Gizo took their second jab yesterday.

The vaccination team will travel to Noro next week and then to Shortland Islands in the coming weeks.

In an interview with SunGizo, Director of Health for Western Province, Dickson Boara said he was happy with the turn out yesterday.

“Turnout was slow today (yesterday) but I’m happy with the total number of officials who turned up for vaccination.

“This is the second dose, meaning we are safe from COVID-19,” he said.

Boara said the public who are willing to take their first dose are welcome to visit the vaccination site close to Gizo hospital.

He said the call is in response to the idea of making use of the vaccine before it reaches its expiry dates.

“I call on the public who wish to take their first dose to come to the vaccination site.

“This is because we want to make use of the doses. We don’t want the vaccines to be wasted,” he said.
