However, Prime Minister Andrew Holness has reported the Jamaican government’s efforts to improve internet access and make-up for lost education time.

In April 2021, the AFJ vacciated almost 1,000 Jamaicans with the AstraZeneca Vaccines in Hanover, Jamaica. According to the May 2021 TechnologyNetworks’ compilation of US FDA data, AstraZeneca has the longest storage life between 2 - 8 degrees Celsius . However, medical innovations such as ultra-low temperature freezers and updated studies continue to speed up vaccination rates.

On December 14, 2020, Sandra Lindsay became the first American to receive the COVID vaccine in the United States. Lindsay immigrated to the US from Jamaica in 1986. She now serves as the Director of Nursing at the critical division of the Long Island Medical Center in Queens, New York. When asked about her experience working throughout the toughest days of the pandemic, Lindsay said, “We’ve been asked to protect the health of the community.

We are grateful to speak about our vaccination efforts after vaccinating almost 1,000 Jamaicans at our first COVID Blitz Site in Hanover.

We plan to “reactivate and continue the implementation of our planning, promotions and logistics operations as soon as the Government indicates its intention to resume the COVID-19 vaccination, based on supplies becoming available”.

The UN forecasts rising COVID-19 infections and slow vaccination progress in many developing nations as a barrier to economic growth. The World Economic Situation and Prospects (WESP) mid-2021 projects the global economy to expand by 5.4% in 2021, with China and the US on the path to recovery. However, Jamaica’s return to pre-pandemic economic output will depend on improving vaccination rates.

Donate to the AFJ COVID-19 Vaccine Fund to help Jamaica get back on track.
