ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Some Sixty-five (65) adults and one hundred and sixty-nine (169) children were vaccinated in the VI/USVI vaccine initiative which came to an end last Thursday, September 17, 2021.

Virgin Islands Minister for Health and Social Development, Hon Carvin Malone (AL) extended appreciation to the USVI for collaborating on the Vaccination Bubble Initiative that resulted in the vaccination of a total 234 persons.

According to the Minister, “On behalf of the Government and people of the Virgin Islands I extend heartfelt thanks to the Government and people of the United States Virgin Islands for willingly and professionally providing and administering first, second and third doses of Pfizer and the Johnson & Johnson vaccines to citizens and residents of the British Virgin Islands,” he said.

Minister expressed gratitude to teams involved 

Hon Malone also thanked the VI-USVI Vaccination Bubble Committee and his ministry team for the collaborative work to make the initiative a success.

Honorable Malone witnessed the final round of vaccination with Lieutenant Governor Tregenza A. Roach and Assistant Commissioner, VI Department of Health, Dr Nicole Syms, and a number of USVI and VI health professionals.

He said the VI team was pleased to present gifts as a small token of appreciation to the USVI team.

“The BVI owes a debt of gratitude to the BVI-USVI Vaccination Bubble Committee, the public officers, health professionals and our many volunteers who worked tirelessly above and beyond the call of duty to solicit, register and accompany the many participants to and from St. John,” Hon Malone said.
