Currently, the regular vaccination program continues on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Thus, if Covid-19 vaccine is given in those days, regular vaccination programme can cause complications. In view of this, the Department of Medical Health has decided to stop vaccination on those two days and give it on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with the exception of Sundays, which are public holidays. As part of the first instalment, healthcare workers will be vaccinated. This can take up to a week's time. The second instalment will then vaccinate frontline warriors (police, sanitation workers and other employees).

The general public will then be vaccinated in the fourth instalment.
