NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Confusion and a lack communication made for a frustrating situation at the Kendal Isaacs Gym as some people waited up to three hours, today, to get vaccinated.

Jillian Gray reports. 

 



A red ticket for walk-ins and a white for those with an appointment, that numbering system left dozens of residents irate outside the Kendal Issacs vaccination site as those with that red ticket sat in the heat for hours waiting for their number to be called.

There were only about 30 people waiting with a red ticket but they waited hours just to get inside.

Some were shouting at the door attendants as those with appointments walked in and waited in the air-conditioned gym for their number to be called.

These residents say it was the pressure placed on them from work that made them come to get vaccinated but after hours of waiting both Evertte Ferguson and Natasha said they were at their wits end.

While the Ministry of Health has said that first doses of the Pfizer vaccine would be discontinued, site officials told Our News they have slotted a few in because of the demand.

Nearly 500 people were expected today.

Travel was one of the motivating factors for Melanie Rahming who brought her stepson 14 year old Davion Beckford for his second shot.

The United States will soon require international travelers to be fully vaccinated.

For 14 year old Lashaun Neymour getting vaccinated means getting back to school safely.

As of October 16, over 119 thousand people were fully vaccinated.
