Davis Administration continues in its fight against COVID-19 with Social
Mobilization Program

The Ministry of Health and Wellness in collaboration with PAHO continues to make
strides in educating the public and making COVID-19 vaccines readily available to
various communities.

Following the launch of the program last weekend, teams from the Ministry of Health
and Wellness and PAHO will be conducting community walkabouts and hosting three
pop-up vaccination sites at Masons Addition, Christie Park, and at the Mall at Marathon
on Saturday, 5 February 2022.

The Social Mobilization Unit was implemented in December to encourage the uptake of
vaccinations among junkanooers and young people ages 18-30.

Last Saturday, the unit was mobilized in the areas of Masons Addition and Christie Park,
where the team educated community members about COVID-19 protection measures and
administered vaccines.

This Saturday, the Social Mobilization Unit’s Pop-Up will return to Masons Addition in
Centerville and Christie Park on Nassau Street from 10 am – 2 pm.

A vaccination site will also be open from 10 am – 6 pm at the Mall at Marathon.
The unit is expected to announce additional vaccine pop-up sites for next weekend, as
they continue the fight against COVID-19.
