The Pfizer Biontech COVID-19 vaccine will arrive on Grand Cayman on Tuesday, 5 January 2021.

This was announced today by Cayman Islands Government/Ministry of Health.

At around 2PM at Owen Roberts International Airport the vaccine will be here and Governor Martyn Roper and Chief Medical Officer Dr John Lee are expected to be in attendance and may say a few words but no programme is planned.

Announcing the National COVID-19 Vaccination Plan in Parliament earlier this month Premier Alden McLaughlin noted that the UK Government had arranged to deliver supplies of the Pfizer Biotech COVID-19 vaccine to the Overseas Territories. The Cayman Islands Government is set to receive its first shipment of the vaccine on the British Airways flight of 5 January 2021. Pfizer Biontech was the first vaccine to receive clearance in the United Kingdom (UK) and has since been approved by healthcare regulatory agencies around the world, including the United States and Canada.
