Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness will get his COVID-19 vaccine shot on Monday, March 22.

According to local media reports, Holness’s vaccination date was confirmed in a meeting of the COVID-19 subcommittee of Cabinet on Saturday.

The Prime Minister’s vaccination comes three days after the country’s Health Minister, Christopher Tufton got his.

Both Holness and Tufton have repeatedly stated that they would be vaccinated in April, as they would not be jumping ahead of priority groups. But public pressure has caused the two to change their minds.
