Statement by Minister of Health (Hon. Sabrina Turner) on FDA Approval of COVID-19 Vaccine
The Cayman Islands Government has taken careful note of USFDA’s full approval of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine on Monday 23 August 2021.
This approval demonstrates what we have stated all along which is that vaccines developed to fight the COVID-19 disease meets the highest standards of the international health sector.
We hope that the FDA approval will allay any remaining fears concerning the safety of the vaccine for Cayman Islands residents yet to be vaccinated.
We urge everyone to their due diligence and then to take the shot. It is our best protection against the disease as individuals and as a community.
