The VI Department of Health is excited to report that they have experienced a surprisingly high demand for the COVID-19 vaccine during this incentive cycle.
As a result, they have run out of the Pfizer vaccine in the St. Thomas/St. John/Water Island District. They are currently sourcing a supply of Pfizer, and the estimated time of arrival of a supply of the Pfizer vaccine is Wednesday. In the interim, the Moderna vaccine will be available for use. Commissioner Justa Encarnacion expressed her satisfaction with the high number of individuals getting vaccinated.
“The $250 incentive gift card supply is also low,” said Encarnacion. “We will continue to provide the vaccines at Food Fair and the Village. If the on-hand supply runs out, you will be given a timeline to return for your gift card. We ask that you return with your vaccine and ID.”
The VIDOH apologizes for any inconvenience that residents may experience. However, they are pleased that Virgin Islanders appreciate the importance of getting vaccinated and boosted.
