Acting Prime Minister Reginald Austrie says Dominica is taking steps to increase efficiency within the Ministry of Health in efforts to close vaccination gaps on the island.
This week the Pan American Health Organization together with the countries and territories of the Region of the Americas and its partners, celebrates the 20th annual Vaccination Week in the Americas and the 11th World Immunization Week.
The acting prime minister noted, the Electronic Immunization Registry (EIR) project will promote evidence-based decision making and reliable data collection.
Minister Austrie went on to express Dominica’s solidarity with PAHO’s mission and urged all Dominicans to take responsibility for their health and take the opportunity to get vaccinated against covid 19 and other preventable viruses.
