The Opposition People’s National Party, PNP, is raising concerns that Jamaicans are being turned away from some vaccination sites across the island.

Several reports emerged at the weekend alleging that scores of Jamaicans, including the elderly, were turned away from blitz sites when they attempted to be vaccinated.

Opposition Spokesman on Health, Dr. Morais Guy, says the government must put an end to the practice.

The Health Ministry is currently administering the Pfizer vaccine to children 12 to 18 years old in an all-island blitz.

The blitz is set to end tomorrow.

The Ministry had invited persons with appointments at the weekend to reschedule, as it shifted focus to the inoculation of children.

But Dr. says provisions should be made for persons who show up to the vaccination sites without an appointment.

Meanwhile, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Dunstan Bryan, says the government’s policy prohibits vaccination sites from turning away persons who do not have an appointment.

Mr. Bryan says the Ministry will take the necessary corrective action once reports of persons being turned away are brought to its attention.
