COVID-19 Update 19 May 2021

The Chief Medical Officer, Dr. John Lee, reports that 345 COVID-19 tests have been carried out since this was last reported on Tuesday,18 May 2021. All were negative.

Public Health advises that an historical correction is being made to the vaccination data from February and March 2021 so that an additional 192 first doses and 469 second doses are being added in addition to the vaccinations performed on 18th May.

There have been 75,284 Covid-19 vaccinations given in total in the Cayman Islands. Of these, 40,778 (63% of the estimated population) have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 53% have completed the two dose course.

At the beginning of May, following the last scheduled delivery from the UK, there were enough remaining doses to fully vaccinate approximately 7,000 people. There are now enough vaccines remaining to fully vaccinate 3,000 people before these expire at the end of June.

Public Health continues to encourage those who wish to come forward to do so before the 9th of June to allow sufficient time to have the second dose before the expiry date.
