Jamaica - Government Profile

Statement to the House of Parliament - Conditional cash transfer for the vaccinated & extension of set and best cash grants

Madam Speaker, this pandemic does not end in Jamaica until a large majority of persons in the over 60 population is vaccinated. It is in the public interest that this segment of the population that is vulnerable to COVID-19 is fully vaccinated. This Government, through the SERVE Jamaica programme, is building on the CARE programme, to provide an incentive for those persons 60 and over to become fully vaccinated.
