ERHA gives Sinopharm first dose to over 135 senior citizens

Over 135 senior citizens received their first dose of the Sinopharm vaccine in the Eastern region on Wednesday, for the first day of the amended rollout vaccination plan dubbed the Elderly Express Experience Programme.

According to the Eastern Regional Health Authority (ERHA), this initiative is designed to provide an express avenue for the elderly to quickly and comfortably access vaccines.

To ease access, the ERHA administered the 1st dose of the Sinopharm vaccine from multiple sites within the communities which are the Sangre Grande Enhanced Health Centre, Toco Health Centre, Mayaro District Health Facility, Manzanilla Outreach Centre and the Rio Claro Health Centre.

This phase of the vaccination process will continue and will also include persons in homes for the aged and shut-ins in their communities.
