Senior Public Health Nurse and Immunization Manager, Nurse Florestine Lewis, says while anti vaccination groups are increasing, they continue to do well with providing coverage to children under the age of five.
Lewis says while some persons have refused getting vaccinated it has not affected their coverage across the island.
She says this is largely due to the fact that parents are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of getting vaccinated.
This week is being recognized as the 14th Vaccination week of the Americas under the theme 'Go for the Gold! Get Vaccinated!'
