Portland cops get COVID vaccine
PORT ANTONIO, Portland — The health authorities started vaccinating police in the constabulary’s Portland Division Monday as the island continued its inoculation programme for front-line workers.
Public health nurse Marian Green-Williams briefed the cops in their conference room in Port Antonio before the process started. She told those who received the jab that they should return on April 17 when the second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine will be administered.
More than 300 cops serve in the division.
Head of the division, Superintendent Duane Wellington, who was the first to be inoculated, said 109 cops were scheduled to be vaccinated Monday. Another set will be inoculated next week.
