VIDOH Announces Stock of Vaccines and Gift Cards on St. Thomas Have been Temporarily Depleted

US Virgin Islands —The VI Department of Health (VIDOH) is excited to report that we have experienced a surprisingly high demand for the COVID-19 vaccine during this incentive cycle. As a result, we ran out of the Pfizer vaccine in the St. Thomas/St. John/Water Island District. We are currently sourcing a supply of Pfizer. A supply of the Pfizer vaccine is anticipated to arrive tomorrow and in the interim the Moderna vaccine will be available for use.

Commissioner Encarnacion simply expressed her satisfaction of the high number of individuals who are being vaccinated.

“The $250 incentive gift cards supply is also low,” continued the Commissioner, “We will continue to provide the vaccines at Food Fair and the Village. If the on-hand supply runs out, you will be given a timeline to return for your gift card. We ask that you return with your vaccine and ID.

The VIDOH apologizes for any inconvenience that residents may have experienced, however we are pleased that Virgin Islanders appreciate the importance of getting vaccinated and boosted.
