COVID-19 first-time vaccination appointments and walk-ins, including booster shots for those eligible, are available at designated Ministry of Health Clinics and may also be available at other private partner facilities.
The national COVID-19 vaccination program is operated by the Turks and Caicos Islands Government – Ministry of Health Primary Health care Department. This entity is separate and independent from the Turks and Caicos Islands Hospital and some clinics are located on the hospital compound.
The COVID-19 vaccine was made available to all persons that reside in the Turks and Caicos Islands from 25 January 2021. The aim of the government is to make the vaccine available to as many persons who are eligible and choose to receive it.
