Members of the public are being urged to stick to the appointment times allotted for their COVID-19 vaccinations.
According to Co-coordinator of the National Vaccination Programme Major David Clarke, some people with appointments for their second doses were arriving at the designated sites way too early.
He added that in some instances, those who were given afternoon appointments were turning up in the morning for their vaccinations, long before the site was open.
Major Clarke stressed that this practice resulted in long wait times and overcrowding at the vaccination sites, which only leads to frustration for everyone involved. He said showing up too early or late for appointments was not recommended.
He urged members of the public to arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment to make the process more seamless. (BT/BGIS)
