Over 1,55 million doses of covid-19 vaccine have been administered in the Caribbean in the past two weeks. A total of 4,65 million injections were performed.
It is in the Bahamas, Trinidad and Saint-Barth that the pace has accelerated sharply. In Saint-Barth, this is explained by the opening of the vaccination center to the entire population which allowed 1200 injections in one week. In the Bahamas and Trinidad, even if the pace has increased, the number of doses administered remains low compared to the number of inhabitants, 8% of the population received a first dose in the Bahamas, 3% in Trinidad.
In Puerto Rico, Grenada and Barbados, vaccination has increased by a third, in Saint-Martin by more than 45%.
In Bonnaire, eight out of ten inhabitants have already received a dose of the vaccine, six out of ten inhabitants in Puerto Rico, Anguilla and Curaçao, half in Sint Maarten. Between 30 and 36% of the population received a first injection in Montserrat, the British Virgin Islands, Antigua and Barbados.
The vaccines used are Pfizer, AstraZeneca as well as Indian, Chinese and Russian vaccines.
