Jamaica: Public health nurse first to get COVID vaccine in Jamaica

Public health nurse Marcia Thomas Yetman was the first to get the COVID-19 vaccine in Jamaica this morning.

She was inoculated at the Good Samaritan Inn in St Andrew by public health nurse Fiona Ellis.

Thomas Yetman is among a host of frontline workers who are receiving the vaccine today.

“I am very surprised, I am afraid of injections,” Thomas Yetman said after coming out of observation.

Though her mind was previously occupied by this fear, the 55-year-old, who has been serving since 1994, said her apprehension was quelled by the importance of the need to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
