A Brac resident receives the COVID-19 vaccine

(CNS): Public Health officials said that almost 33,000 people have now received at least one shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, which equates to around 51% of the entire population, with 41% having received the full double dose course. There were no new cases of the virus reported in Tuesday’s test results and there are now just 23 active cases of the coronavirus among the more than 680 people in quarantine and isolation, two of whom are showing symptoms of COVID-19. The total number of confirmed cases of the virus recorded in Cayman since testing began is 523.

    Open up the border. Require masks for essential places like grocery stores and mandate vaccine passports for everywhere else like restaurants and bars. Non-vaccinated quarantine in hotels on arrival. Everyone who wants to be vaccinated is vaccinated already. We can’t wait forever.

      Agreed OPEN NOW to fully vaccinated people!
      The US CDC announced today that infection of a fully vaccinated person is very very rare… 0.0075% chance in US Data as of today. There is no reason a full vaccinated person with a negative test should be in isolation.

        Uh, no. The head of the World Health Organization said today that an alarming trend of rising Covid cases has resulted in global infections now approaching their highest level since the start of the pandemic.

          Your comment had nothing to do with break through infection on vaccinated people! The WHO may have said that but again the point is it is very rare a vaccinated person get the virus!

    If the government had been so restrictive in giving out the vaccines we would have had a lot more people vaccinated.

    They did us a disservice to the point where people got fed with their day, surname and lunch closures that they just said to hell with. Now that they have opened it up maybe we will see an uptick..guess we better hurry since the governor says we ain’t getting anymore.

      They have opened it up but the his are still not helpful. U know several people who still can’t make it during the hours .. why the heck don’t they open it up on Sundays? Just two Sundays, and we’d probably see a huge uptick. This is a health emergency, not a sale at some little store!

    Should have been at all the polling stations today jabbing people as they walked in.

    If I’m not mistaken Alden said once 80% of the adult population is vaccinated the quarantines will be eliminated.

    If the adult population represents 85% of 65000 we need a total number of 44,200+- adults vaccinated before quarantine requirements are eliminated. We’re still short 11,000.

      Need 2nd pension fund withdrawal to incentivize vaccinations… it’s the only way

        Or a date for border relaxation of some sort (even if not completely back to normal) which might incentivize those who don’t need/want to leave the island to get a move on.

          Anyone eligible in Cayman that wants one can now waltz into an injection site and fix their situation and yet we are stuck at 51% participation. That’s far less than minimum threshold for open borders, even if there were travelers going anywhere. In a few months (and nobody knows when for sure) even some of those 51% will need a third booster injection of some kind. Probably 2-3 more years of this ahead, even when varying grades of vaccination passports emerge since third world unvaccinated or with deficient vaccines. They aren’t all the same as it turns out!

      The (sad) truth of the matter is that Government has only an estimate of total population and is, at best, guessing how many of those are aged 16+. We might be waiting on people that don’t exist. 🥴
