In preparation for the Covid-19 Vaccination Programme, frontline healthcare providers at the Eastern Regional Health Authority are enhancing their knowledge and skills to ensure safe and efficient Covid-19 vaccine administration..

The sessions commenced on February 22, 2021 at the Sangre Grande Enhanced Health Centre and involved the sensitization of doctors, nurses, phlebotomists, emergency medical technicians and other frontline staff. Storage, handling, reporting, and patient education were some of the topics discussed at the sensitization session.

During the interactive session, the participants were provided with a lot of useful information and had the opportunity to get clarification of a number of issues.

The healthcare workers were also encouraged to lead the way and get vaccinated as they continue to be on the frontline of the nation’s fight against this deadly pandemic.

COVID-19 Vaccination Sensitization sessions will continue at various locations throughout the Authority for all frontline healthcare providers.
