More vaccine clinics set for vulnerable kids

| 11/02/2022 | 17 Comments

(CNS): Another four Saturday COVID-19 vaccination clinics have been scheduled by the Public Health Department for vulnerable children between five and eleven years old. The clinics are by appointment only and open from 9am until 3:30pm at the Cayman Islands Hospital, beginning tomorrow and every two weeks until the end of March, when the nurses will begin administering second doses for vulnerable kids.

Studies have shown that a larger interval between the first and second dose may provide better immunological response and less side effects. The second dose can be administered at least eight weeks following the first shot.

A physician’s letter in support of the child receiving the vaccine will be required to get the shot as the vaccine has not yet been formally approved for all children in this age group. Vulnerable or high-risk children over five and those in the same age group living with vulnerable or immunocompromised individuals will qualify.

Children with chronic respiratory disease, heart and kidney, liver or digestive system diseases as well as neurological conditions such as Down’s syndrome, endocrine disorders or Immunosuppression due to transplants and medical treatment, those with asplenia or dysfunction of the spleen or kids who have serious genetic abnormalities that affect a number of systems qualify for the shots.

Clinics are set as follows:

Saturday 12 February – 1st dose

Saturday 26 February – 1st dose

Saturday 12 March – 1st dose

Saturday 26 March – 2nd dose (for those vaccinated on 29 January)

Appointments can be made by contacting the Public Health Clinic at 926-8152. Please bring along the child’s immunisation record. All children 12 or over can access the vaccine at the regular clinics but childhood vaccines will not be administered at the regular COVID vaccination clinic. For children who would be eligible for this in the Sister Islands, please contact Faith Hospital to schedule an appointment 244-7643.

    If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.

    Hold the line people. The fraud behind the “pandemic” is being exposed.
    Do not offer your children up to this unrighteous scam.
    People will be arrested for imposing vaccine and face-diaper muzzle mandates.

      A lot of you tin hats are spewing conspiracy tripe but fail to offer anything more than baxide gas when asked to support their allegations.
      Please tell us the exact nature of the alleged fraud and present us with some good credible, verifiable clinical evidence from reputable sources. You are not doing a very good job of exposing anything but your ignorance.

        They can’t..Even Trump their leader is fully vaxxed and boosted..

        The pandemic is slowly coming to an end because the majority of us got vaccinated. They will claim their conspiracy theories were right all along and that’s fine they really need something to make them feel special.

          As the OP, I can assure you that Trump is not my “leader”.
          Trump is just another politician who broke promises to prosecute evil. The entire global political system is corrupt to the core and while they are dropping their bombs in the name of peace, you can just clutch your “shopping bag for life” knowing that they will take care of you.
          Snowflake mentality is getting way out of hand.
          My only leader is the truth.

          Hahaha. Sure it was the vaccine that did it.

          The vaccine that didn’t prevent spread or your ability to catch a cold.

    Good that this is an option for vulnerable kids. I just hope the government isn’t going to force this on regular 5-11 year olds, for whom the vaccine is unnecessary.

    They can’t be administered at doctors offices because of the freezer storage requirements. It is not as simple as to take one out of the freezer, defrost it in the microwave (like a frozen dinner) & shoot it into you arm…

    Stop the madness. How many “vulnerable children” do they really think there are?

    Why are all vaccines not being administered at all doctors offices and medical facilities at this stage of the Covid game?
