“Boost Your Power, Get Vaccinated” was the theme of messages spread by the BVI Health Services Authority throughout the week, which was observed around the region.

On Thursday evening, students at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College participated in a debate about whether vaccinations should be mandatory.

Other activities during the week included sessions educating parents and guardians on the importance of having their children vaccinated, according to the BVIHSA.
