All aspects of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan will be tested before going live to ensure the safe and effective delivery of the vaccine to those who choose to take it, said Dr. Merceline Dahl-Regis, chairperson of the National COVID-19 Vaccine Consultative Committee (NCVCC).

The Bahamas was notified earlier this week that it could receive 100,000 doses of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine starting the second half of February through the COVAX Facility.

“The distribution and administration of the COVID-19 vaccine in The Bahamas will be a great operational challenge and perhaps the most difficult that the public health sector has ever faced,” said Dr. Dahl-Regis at an NCVCC press conference at the Office of the Prime Minister.

Dr. Dahl-Regis said that vaccines would be administered at approved sites in communities across The Bahamas to ensure increased access and equitable distribution.  

All approved sites must be accessible, safe, and appropriate for the distribution of the vaccine, she emphasized.

Three priority groups have been proposed to receive the vaccine.
