A shipment of the Pfizer vaccine arrived in the Bahamas on Thursday morning, in preparation for its early distribution next week.
128,700 doses were donated by the US government to assist the Bahamas in its vaccination drive.
This first batch of vaccines is part of the 397,000 doses donated by the US government and is a part of nearly 837,000 doses delivered to Caribbean countries.
The Bahamas is among the first Caribbean countries to receive the Pfizer vaccine.
Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said the batch will help to vaccinate half of the population and meet the demands that exist.
He pleaded with Bahamians to get vaccinated.
“You do not have any time to wait any longer. You do not have time to keep thinking about it. The hospital is filled to its limit. Sadly some people are dying.
“Taking shots will save your life.”
