“Expat Community…1st in line” for COVID-19 Vaccine; as opposed to locals

It has been a little over a month since the rollout out of the Federation’s COVID-19 Vaccination Campaign on February 22nd

 

In terms of who is eligible to take the Vaccine, generally, the age range is between 18 and 80 years.

Persons under the age of 18 here in St. Kitts & Nevis, are not eligible to be inoculated, not to mention persons over the age of 80.

Individuals over 80 years of age seeking to be Vaccinated should consult with their doctors first. 

 

Thus far, almost 26% of St. Kitts & Nevis’ population has been vaccinated.

But how are locals and expats responding to the jab?

An expatriate (often shortened to expat) is a person residing in a country other than their native country, for example: for work purposes, either independently or sent abroad by their employers.
